The development of a strong partnership between the United Nations and the European Union (EU) is increasingly critical as global crises intensify in complexity and multiply in scope, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon declared today.
In remarks delivered to the Security Council on cooperation between the UN and the EU, Mr. Ban told delegates that the “strategic partnership” between the two organizations “runs deep” as both share “common values and are committed to the peaceful collective management of security challenges to avoid conflict.”
“In recent years, the United Nations and the EU have made significant strides in working together for peace and security around the world,” he continued. “But we still encounter difficulties in mobilizing early action before a situation visibly deteriorates.”
As a solution, Mr. Ban explained, rapid and effective political engagement remained “the single most important element for success” in preventive diplomacy efforts as the two bodies continue to tackle a range of international challenges together.
