L'attentat terroriste commis aujourd'hui dans la ville de Suruç, en Turquie, à l'encontre de jeunes bénévoles de la Fédération des associations des jeunes socialistes, rassemblés pour aller aider à la reconstruction de Kobané, visait à déstabiliser encore plus la région et les communautés vivant côte à côte. Cet attentat ne fait qu'ajouter à la douleur et à la souffrance des Syriens qui tentent d'échapper à la violence et à la destruction, et des Turcs qui s'emploient si généreusement à les aider.



Today's terrorist attack in Turkish town of Suruҫ targeting young volunteers from the Federation of Socialist Youth Associations (SGDF), who were gathered to go and help with the reconstruction of Kobane, aimed to further destabilise the region and communities living side by side. The attack adds to the pain and suffering of Syrian people fleeing violence and destruction, and of the Turkish people so generously engaged in helping them.

"Crises, poverty and many attempts worldwide to shrink the space of civil society require all our attention and efforts on human rights. We face everyday the dramatic situation of people oppressed and forced to flee from conflicts, of women struggling to defend their dignity and their rights, of children reduced to slavery, of citizens who's basic rights are systematically ignored. The Action Plan we are launching today reinforces the EU's commitment to human rights, and focuses on empowering local actors and civil society organisations. All EU Member States stand united in taking it forward", said Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice President of the European Commission, on adoption of the Action Plan.

Good afternoon, I know you are all waiting for other news this afternoon from a different format of the Council that is meeting in this very same moment. I am also waiting from news from that format of the Council.

Today with the Foreign Ministers we started by celebrating good results of European and multilateral diplomacy, which shows us also the way for the many crises we still have to face and that still need to be solved.
