The EU defines its priorities for the United Nations General Assembly

The 3101st Council meeting on  Foreign Affairs held in Luxembourg on 20 June 2011 approved the EU's priorities, with regard to peace and security, environment, sustainable development and human rights, for the 66th session of the United Nations General Assembly, which will start in September (11298/11). The Treaty of Lisbon reaffirms the EU's commitment to the principles of the UN charter, calling for multilateral solutions to common problems and challenges. To contribute to the achievement of this objective, the EU will continue to strive to build a stronger multilateral system, notably by enhancing the representativeness, transparency, accountability, efficiency and effectiveness of the United Nations. In this regard, the EU will actively engage in the reflection started in the General Assembly on the role of the UN in global governance.
