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.

On behalf of the European Union I would like to make this statement regarding the draft resolution on the “Implementation of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples by the specialized agencies and the international institutions associated with the United Nations”.

The members of the European Union who are also members of the Economic and Social Council will, as in previous years, abstain during the vote on this resolution.

The European Union believes that the issues which are dealt with in the resolution are not under the competence of ECOSOC.
