On 24 October, the High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini spoke on the occasion of the United Nations Day.

“Investing in our partnership with the UN is natural as we share the same fundamental values and goals. Together, we join forces in our work around the world and in Europe, for sustainable development, peace and security, and humanely and respectfully managed migration. And together we fight for education for all, gender equality and human rights.”

She added that the EU and the UN agreed to further strengthen their partnership on peace operations and crisis management, and development. Together, they are, among others, supporting political processes to bring back peace in areas of conflict, from Syria to Libya.

“International rules, organisations and jurisdictions are a guarantee for all. That’s why we will always continue to invest in a strong UN system. Together – as we celebrate UN Day – we will stay a force for change.”
