Quietly, the EU gets a seat at the UNPosted: May 3, 2011
In a relative indifference, the European Union diplomacy just made a big step forward : the EU just obtain the status of Super-Observer at the UN general Assembly.
What is a Super-Observer will you ask ? It is somebody that super-observe of course. Going further that this obvious definition, it means that now, the EU has a right to speak at the GA, which it could not do before, as a simple observer.
It is indeed a major step in the building of a European diplomacy. We just have to see now if the EU is making good use of this new possibility to express it self at the UN.
