In the past years, democratic rights & the basic law have continuously been eroded, in particular since the adoption of the National Security Act. We expect #China to respect its international obligations, incl. autonomy and fundamental rights of the citizens of #HongKong. 2/2
On this day 25 years ago, the control of #HongKong was handed back to #China. Democratic principles, #RuleOfLaw & political pluralism were enshrined in the #BasicLaw and by the principle of “one country, two systems”. These rights and fundamental are in serious peril. 1/2

Bringing the gender perspective to the table changes things for the better. WPS must become part of our DNA as an alliance. Women, Peace & Security is not a nice-to-have but a security and defense necessity. - @ABaerbock at #NatoSummit 4/4
Gender based violence is used as a weapon of war, inflicting long lasting damage on societies. We see this in Ukraine. We support prosecution in order to hold perpetrators accountable. 3/4
Women’s rights are an indicator of the development and the stability of countries. Where women lose their rights, societies disintegrate. And peace processes are more successful if gender perspectives are integrated. - @ABaerbock 2/4
Integrating the gender perspective and the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda are at the center of #NATO s Strategic Concept. WPS is not a “soft issue” but hard security. - FM @ABaerbock with 🇪🇸 Defense Minister Margarita Robles an@irenefellinin a#NATOSummitiJq
NATO is a defense alliance, protecting the security of 1 bln. citizens on our territory. Security is more than diplomacy and military capabilities. Beyond the threat posed by Russia, we have to bolster against terrorism, cyber-attacks and the challenges of the climate crisis. 3/3
We counter Russia's attack on the European peace order by boldly strengthening our defense, especially on the eastern flank. And by making NATO fit for the future with the new #StrategicConcept, and by strengthening the Alliance by admitting #Finland and #Sweden. 2/3
For more than 70 years, #NATO has protected our security and our freedom. Now we are adapting to the new reality. Putin's war against Ukraine poses the greatest challenge since the end of the Cold War. We stand united. #NATOSummit #Madrid. 1/3
Recent developments in #Ethiopia towards ending the conflict in #Tigray are a step in the right direction. #Peace talks btw the parties are more than urgently needed to achieve lasting peace, prosperity and reconciliation for all Ethiopians, not only in Tigray.
With its war against Ukraine, Russia has torn apart our peace order as we know it. In this new reality, our close partners and 🇪🇺 friend#Finlandnd an#Swedenen have chosen to joi#NATOTO. At today’#NatoSummitit we strongly say: We are there for you. 1/2

The aim of the conference was to hear the recommendations of the Afghan civil society: ➡️to find ways to preserve space for civil society in Afghanistan & to step up our support ➡️to deepen dialogue also among Afghans based in Germany. Full speech 👉 2/2i
"It is our firm commitment to do all we can to help improve the life of Afghanistan's men, women & children, especially girls." FM @baerbock met with Afghans today who are striving to improve the situation of the people in #Afghanistan. 1/2
#Rwanda: @BioNTech_Group has started to build first production facility for mRNA-vaccines #madeinAfrica, South Africa + Senegal will follow. Important step to better prepare Africa for future pandemics.🇩🇪 supports vaccine production in Africa with € 530 million.
We are united to address the global food crisis in its complexity: -in speeding up food exports from #Ukraine -in stepping up humanitarian assistance -in addressing underlying factors of vulnerability & the climate crisis -in alleviating possible indirect effects of sanctions 3/3
It is Russia, not the G7 sanctions, who starve the world. However, we see that sanctions can have indirect effects and we are working hard to alleviate them. But those effects are minor compared to Russia’s brutal war, blocking of ports and obstruction of harvests. @ABaerbock 2/3
In March, 141 countries came together in New York, #UnitingForPeace. Today, in Berlin, we are #UnitingForFoodSecurity. We stand in solidarity with those most affected by the global food crisis. We will not let Russia starve the world. - FM @ABaerbock (1/3)

#Servicetweet: Follow today's "Uniting for Global Food Security" Conference in Berlin live @UNWebTV from aprox. 2:30 pm CEST:… #UnitingForFoodSecurity @BMZ_Bund @bmel
Together, we want to ➡️expedite food exports from Ukraine. ➡️mobilise more life-saving assistance. Every yuan, every riyal, every dirham would help. ➡️make food production more sustainable and resilient to crisis. More info: #UnitingForFoodSecurity (3/3)
2/3 We hear from many parts of the globe: "We don't have time to ask who is to blame. We want to see who is offering solutions."  We are the ones who will have to provide these solutions. That is what the international conference #UnitingForFoodSecurity is about:
"Russia is waging an unprovoked war on Ukraine, Russia is using hunger as a weapon of war and taking the world hostage in the process" - FM @ABaerbock at a press conference on #UnitingForFoodSecurity today with @SvenjaSchulze69 and @cem_oezdemir @BMZ_Bund @bmel (1/3)
Welcome to Berlin, where the international community is #UnitingForFoodSecurity. Convened by Ministers @ABaerbock, @SvenjaSchulze68 and @cem_oezdemir, we will discuss solutions for the worst food crisis of our times. @BMZ_Bund @bmel
The UN agency @UNRWA ensures the survival of millions of #PalestineRefugees in the Middle East, by providing access to health care & food. Germany remains a reliable partner and contributed 113 million euros in support of #UNRWA today.
Since 2006, German peacekeepers from the UN mission @UNIFIL_ have been working towards restoring peace and security between #Lebanon & #Israel. The #Bundeswehr mission in Lebanon remains important and was just extended for another year by the Bundestag.
I’m deeply shocked and saddened by the terrible earthquake in #Afghanistan with over a thousand people killed and wounded. My thoughts are with the victims' families. Together with our international partners, we will provide humanitarian aid wherever we can.

Living abroad gave me a perspective that has stayed with me and shaped how I see the world. It enriched my life and my work. I was glad to share my experiences with this year’s Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange program participants at the @StateDept today.

And we must finally take next steps in the #WesternBalkans – because if we don‘t, Russia will. But it won't be enough to simply put more chairs in the circle in Brussels. It is time to continue building the #EU, including moving away from unanimity in the EU’s foreign policy. 3/3…
Russia's war is a historic watershed for our continent. The decisions we take now will shape circumstances in #Europe for a long time - even though the accession process remains long and hard. The same holds true for our friends in #Moldova. 2/3…
#Ukraine is defending Europe‘s values. That is reason enough for the #EU not to shut the door in its face. But the question of #candidate status is about more: About whether we are capable, at a historic crossroads, of acting strategically rather than merely by the book. 1/3…
