European Parliament identifies priorities for 65th UN General Assembly

In a resolution presented on 17 March, Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) listed six priority issues they want the Council of the European Union to address at the 65th United Nations General Assembly: the EU's place at the UN, world governance and UN reform, peace and security, development, human rights and climate change. MEPs called on the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, to co-ordinate Member States' positions better with regard to reform of the UN Security Council. A seat on an enlarged Security must remain a long-term objective of the Union, said the resolution. MEPs asked that EU Member States agree on a common position on the Human Rights Council reform scheduled for 2011, and that the commitment to reaching Millennium Development Goal targets by 2015 be reconfirmed, notably on maternal health (MDG 5), where progress has been limited.
