#EUCO: - Energy prices are a big geopolitical issue with important social consequences. Crisis of gas supplies and prices is in no-one's interest. - The #Belarus regime continues to instrumentalise migrants. We have to hold them accountable for this violation of human rights.

New attacks took place in and around Mekelle and further complicate the fate of thousands of innocent people. We call on all parties to stop violence and engage in talks to preserve the lives of Ethiopian people. There is no military solution to the ongoing conflict. #Tigray

Alexei @navalny winning the @Europarl_EN #SakharovPrize is a recognition of his commitment to defending democracy in Russia, at great personal cost. The EU continues to call for his immediate and unconditional release.
Alexei @navalny is the winner of this year's #SakharovPrize. He has fought tirelessly against the corruption of Vladimir Putin's regime. This cost him his liberty and nearly his life. Today's prize recognises his immense bravery and we reiterate our call for his immediate release

#EUenlargement process needs partners to address fundamental reforms, to strengthen democracy, rule of law, freedoms, economy. And the EU needs to deliver in its commitments. The EU is not complete without the #WesternBalkans. We need to unite to build together a stronger Europe.
Our enlargement policy is an investment in peace, stability, security and economic growth. Today, we've adopted our 2021 #EUEnlargement Package, providing a detailed assessment of the progress made in the Western Balkans and Turkey on their respective paths towards the EU.

#Tigray is shattered by systematic violations of human rights, war crimes and crimes against humanity used as a weapon. In view of the upcoming UN report on human right, we agreed at #FAC to prepare the ground with an adequate response and start work on sanctions.

Met with FM Mangoush ahead of #FAC to discuss latest developments in #Libya. EU stands ready to accompany Libya on its path towards elections in December. Also raised the unacceptable situation in migrant detention centres. Conditions need to be addressed as a matter of priority

Also because of the pandemic, extreme poverty is globally on the rise again. Now more than ever, at #EndPovertyDay, I am reminded again of Nelson Mandela's prevailing words: "As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality exist in our world, none of us can truly rest."

Very much welcome that the US will re-open travel to vaccinated Europeans by 8 November, which has just been announced during my visit in Washington. Important to start people-to-people contacts and visit to family and friends again!

Impressive visit of the Arlington Cemetery and Lincoln Memorial, which tell us so much about US history. And make one reflect on the importance of our shared values of freedom and democracy.

Citizens are ahead of governments in seeing the need for a stronger EU foreign and security policy. Many Europeans wants more results and are ready to invest in achieving that goal. My blog ahead of the Citizens’ Panel on the ‘EU in the world’. #CoFEU europa.eu/!9rCFUp

I stressed that EU Security and Defence policy needs a renewed impetus, which is the overall aim of our “Strategic Compass”. Reinforcing EU Member States capabilities and addressing critical capability gaps will benefit not only the EU, but also the US and NATO.
