UN in your language

UN and the EU

The foundation of the UN-EU partnership is the UN Charter of 1945:

“We the peoples of the United Nations determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war .... To reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights .... To establish conditions upon which justice and respect ... for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained ... To promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.”

Treaty of Lisbon (Treaty on European Union - Article 3):

“In its relations with the wider world, the Union shall uphold and promote its values and interests and contribute to the protection of its citizens. It shall contribute to peace, security, the sustainable development of the Earth, solidarity and mutual respect among peoples, free and fair trade, eradication of poverty and the protection of human rights, in particular the rights of the child, as well as to the strict observance and the development of international law, including respect for the principles of the United Nations Charter.”
