The EU is supportive of all efforts aimed at the prevention of the use of chemical weapons and it reiterates that there can be no other solution to the Syrian conflict than a political one, read a declaration by the High Representative Federica Mogherini on behalf of the EU issued after targeted US, French and UK airstrikes on chemical weapons facilities in Syria. The EU was informed about the strikes conducted with the sole objective to prevent further use of chemical substances as weapons by the Syrian regime to kill its own people.
The 4th of April of each year marks the International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action. Indeed, for some people war is not over even after a peace treaty. Landmines keep killing and maiming people years after conflict has ended. They continue to instill terror, to stop people from returning to their homes or normal lives. The EU is "proud to be a leading force worldwide in addressing the threat of mines and explosive remnants of war" says High Representative Mogherini.
The European Union remains committed to support the full and effective implementation of the nuclear deal, said High Representative Federica Mogherini following an EU/E3 and Iran meeting today on the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) attended by the Foreign Ministers of France, Germany, United Kingdom and Iran.
