Due to the final stages of the negotiations with Iran in Vienna that she coordinates, High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini will not be able to attend the 20th anniversary commemoration of the Srebrenica genocide tomorrow at the Potočari Memorial Park.

Les négociations menées avec l'Iran à Vienne étant entrées dans leur phase finale, Federica Mogherini, haute représentante/vice-présidente, qui coordonne ces négociations, ne pourra pas être présente demain au mémorial de Potočari pour assister à la commémoration du 20e anniversaire du génocide de Srebrenica.

The current School Feeding Programme was set up in reaction to the 2008 food crisis, but also due to climate change, and began to be implemented in 2009 by the UN World Food Programme. EU support since 2013 focuses on improving nutrition in rural areas identified as falling behind in achieving the MDG 1c goal of Food Security. Delivering staples such as rice, peas, oil and salt is part of the Programme, which also tries to encourage primary school children's involvement in school gardens. The Programme improves learning, attendance and enrolment in primary schools, particularly of girls.
