EU at the UN

The EU's commitment to effective multilateralism, with the UN at its core, is a central element of its external action. As a UN observer with enhanced status, the EU delegation coordinates with its 28 Member States to speak with one voice. The EU also works closely with the UN secretariat and its agencies, funds & programmes, partnering on a range of global issues and challenges.

Main results – Foreign Affairs Council – 16 October

16 October 2017, Luxembourg –  The Council  of the European Union discussed the Iran nuclear deal and the situation in North Korea. The Council also debated on the EU policy on human rights and adopted conclusions on Myanmar/Burma.

Statement by HR/VP Mogherini on the latest developments regarding the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal

The Iran deal “is not a bilateral agreement, it does not belong to any single country and it is not up to any single country to terminate it. It is a multilateral agreement that was unanimously endorsed by the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.”

--HR/VP Federica Mogherini

EU priorities at the United Nations and the 72nd United Nations General Assembly

The key EU priority will be to uphold, strengthen and reform the UN and the rules based global order. For the 72nd UNGA, the EU will focus on a stronger global governance, on peace and conflict prevention and on an enduring agenda for transformation. Gender equality and women’s empowerment as well as women, peace and security will be mainstreamed into all three priority areas.
