The Council adopted the EU priorities for the UN and the 73rd UN General Assembly. The conclusions highlight how in today's volatile and unpredictable world, the EU will engage to boost multilateralism.
The key EU priority will be to support the UN through a period of change, translating the EU commitment to multilateralism into a proactive multilateral agenda. For the 73rd UNGA, the EU will focus on peace and conflict prevention, a common positive agenda with the promotion and protection of human rights at the heart of multilateralism, as well as an expanding global engagement on issues such as climate action, the environment, migration, counterterrorism and the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
The conclusions also highlight that partnerships and outreach are essential to deliver strong multilateralism at the country level, where it matters the most. The conclusions underscore the importance of an overarching EU-UN strategic partnership.
