Josep Borrel, head of EU diplomacy, supported peaceful protesters in the United States, condemning violent action. It is reported by Reuters.
It is noted that the EU was shocked by the death of Afro American George Floyd during a gross arrest by a police officer. According to Borrell, this event indicates abuse of power by law enforcement officers.
вЂњWe uphold the right to peaceful protests. We condemn violence and racism of any kind, вЂќ said the representative of the EU, commenting on the ongoing American riots. At the same time, the European Union believes in the ability of the people of the United States to unite and heal the wounds of society, calling on this background to de-escalate.
Borrel also recalled the value of every human life. вЂњAll lives are important, the lives of Afro Americans are also important,вЂќ the European official concluded.
