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.

Javier SOLANA, EU High Representative for the CFSP, met today with Jan EGELAND, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator. The meeting was an opportunity to exchange views on the political and humanitarian situation around the world.

Both underlined the deepening of the dialogue and cooperation between the EU and the UN. Special reference was made to the recent EU led operation in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) as a major contribution to helping the UN in its humanitarian efforts in the region.
