El equipo médico de respuesta humanitaria #START, enviado por la @AECID_es a #Mozambique tras el ciclón #Idai con 71 profesionales españoles, ha atendido a más de mil pacientes, ha realizado 40 cirugías y ha asistido doce nacimientos de partos complicados en diez días 1/5 ImageImage
Una experiencia intensa, dura y apasionante, como me transmite la Jefa de la Oficina de Acción Humanitaria de la @AECID_es, Cristina Gutiérrez, que ha coordinado el despliegue. 2/5 Image
Me transmite también su emoción al recibir el agradecimiento de los pacientes atendidos en el hospital. Nunca se había sentido tan útil para tanta gente. La @CooperacionESP está demostrando su valía y su compromiso en esta difícil situación en #Mozambique. 3/5 ImageImage
Este éxito de la @CooperacionESP no hubiera sido posible sin la colaboración de las autoridades locales de #Mozambique, de la @EmbEspMaputo, de su Oficina Técnica de #Cooperación, de las administraciones locales y autonómicas y de @eu_echo. 4/5 Image
Tampoco hubiera sido posible sin el trabajo de los profesionales que, desde #España, apoyan la labor logística de un despliegue de las características del #START, puesto en marcha por primera vez. Mis más sinceros agradecimientos y enhorabuena a todos #SomosCooperación 5/5 ImageImage

The post-1945 multilateral order is losing ground: we see more confrontation & polarity, less cooperation & multilateralism.

To tackle the challenges facing us in the 21st century, we need a fair assessment & decisive action.

A pleasure to talk today at @UniofOxford🧵1/10
China has risen to super-power status. Middle powers - India, Brazil, South Africa, KSA - are emerging as important actors on the global stage. As Europe we wanted to built a ring of friends & we are surrounded by a ring of fire, from Sahel to Middle East, Caucasus, Ukraine. 2/10
We see an acceleration of global trends, from climate change to demography. Inequalities growing, democracies declining, freedoms at risk.
What do we need?
- A clear assessment of Europe's main existential threat: Russia.
- A strong focus on principles, cooperation, strength 3/10

On 7 October, the horror of the terrorist attack by Hamas against Israel - with the massacre of 1,200 Israelis and the kidnapping of hundreds - shocked the world and plunged the region into a humanitarian and political tragedy.

Six months later, where do we stand?
I add my voice to that of UNSG @antonioguterres in expressing the EU’s total condemnation of a brutality that no cause can justify.
By this indiscriminate attack, Hamas has totally disqualified itself.

The Palestinian people cannot be represented by this criminal group. 2/7
The Israeli people have our deepest sympathy. Israel has the right to defend itself, in full respect of international humanitarian law.

The EU has constantly asked for the unconditional release of all hostages. 
In this tragedy, civilians are paying the highest price.

The Ukrainian army is one of the best in the world. They have proven to be.

Ukraine is resisting, fighting off the Russian aggression, which is trying to cruelly push the country into darkness and cold.

Humbled by the courageous soldiers and their will to defend their people. Image
The EU Military Assistance Mission for Ukraine is proof of our determination to support Ukraine: militarily, financially, economically & politically.

This Mission is unprecedented, pushing EU military cooperation to new levels. Over 20 Member States participate in it. Image
Today, #EUMAM has reached its full initial operational capability.   
1,100 soldiers are already being trained.
The Mission will generate training offers to address Ukrainian needs and we are going to provide resources: €16 million for lethal equipment for training purposes. Image

In 1975 our predecessors signed the Helsinki Final Act, agreeing on a core set of principles: renouncing the use of force, respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity and protecting human rights and freedoms.

Today, Russia is violating all these @OSCE commitments.
Russia has brought war back to Europe. It is throwing Ukraine into cold & darkness, and beyond its brutal attack on Ukraine and it’s people continues its deeply destabilising role in Georgia’s breakaway regions and Transnistrian region of Moldova. We need to be united against it.
The @OSCE institutions and operations continue their efforts to bring stability in this grim environment. The EU will continue its steadfast support to the organisation.

We will provide €1.2 million for OSCE demining activities in Ukraine.

Thanks to @PLinOSCE for their work.

Many ask whether the sanctions adopted by the EU and like-minded partners against Russia are effective.

Read my new blog post to know why the clear answer is yes: (1/5)!PPQkkQ
Since Russia invaded Ukraine, the EU has adopted six packages of sanctions. Our measures target nearly 1,200 individuals and almost 100 entities in Russia and a significant number of economic sectors. (2/5)
Sanctions hit substantially the Russian economy depriving it from access to financial markets and to advanced technology products, crippling the oil industry, the airlines, the military and automotive industries. (3/5)

Wars of aggression cannot be permitted. EU sanctions target Russia’s capacity to continue with the war. They do not target wheat.  Agriculture products and their transport are explicitly excluded. (1/5)
Russia’s ongoing blockade of Ukraine’s ports, is preventing the export of tons of grain, like corn and wheat, currently trapped in Ukraine, one of the main world producers. (2/5)
Russia is directly responsible for any shortages in international trade in grains, and instead of ending its aggression, is actively seeking to transfer responsibility on international sanctions. This is #disinformation (3/5)
