E-008704/2013(ASW)
Answer given by High Representative/Vice-President Ashton on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-008704/2013

The EU interventions during the EU-GCC Ministerial meeting of 30 June 2013 in Manama emphasised the central importance of Human Rights in EU relations with third partners. They reflected the range of EU concerns at the Human Rights situation in Gulf countries, as evidenced in numerous public statements and in the EU Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy in the World, including women's rights, freedom of expression and association.

The HR/VP also issued a specific statement reflecting the EU's position as regards the situation in Bahrain (http://www.consilium.europa.eu/uedocs/cms_Data/docs/pressdata/EN/foraff/137678.pdf).
