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.

The EU to host the second Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region

The European Union will organise a second Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region in spring 2018. This was announced today by High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini during a high-level event on the Syria crisis, hosted by the EU in the margins of the 72nd UN General Assembly in New York and attended by close to 50 countries and partners.

Address by Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, to the 72nd United Nations General Assembly

The European Union stands for freedom and a credible rules-based global order. Because this order is a real sine qua non condition for peace, stability and a global economy that works for everyone. An alternative to this order is chaos which always encourages violence, egoism and extremisms.

Reinvigorating Multilateralism: EU attends 72nd United Nations General Assembly Ministerial week

The EU representatives will participate in numerous events at the United Nations and meet with world leaders, reflecting the EU’s engagement as a force for positive change, in support of multilateralism and a rules-based global order. The level and breadth of the EU’s participation illustrates the strong cooperation between the European Union and the United Nations, which work hand in hand to jointly deliver peace and security, advance human rights and sustainable development, thus changing lives across the globe for the better.

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.

We have broad support for the role of the Commission as guardian of the treaties, for protection of the rule of law, and for this dialogue

I was encouraged by the broad support in the Council to find a solution and by the openness of the Polish Government to a renewed dialogue.

The Commission will study carefully the new proposals today from President Duda. We are ready to pursue the dialogue in Brussels or Warsaw.

As we agreed in May, the Commission has updated Ministers today on the rule of law dialogue with Poland.

Press conference on General Affairs Council starting soon. Watch live here: ec.europa.eu/avservices/ebs… @EUCouncilPress @EU2017EE @EU_Commission
