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.

Summary: 11 July 2015, Brussels – Statement by the High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini on the attack in Cairo, Egypt.

Once again Egypt is under attack, once again Europeans have been hit by terrorists. The attack, which killed at least one and wounded many others in front of the Italian consulate in Cairo during the holy month of Ramadan, is another attempt to defy the Egyptian and European resolve to fight terrorism.

My thoughts go to the families of the victims, to the Egyptian and Italian authorities and people. We will remain united in facing the common threat of terrorism.

We stand by the Egyptian authorities in their efforts to fight terrorism and bring the perpetrators of this attack to justice.
