EU high representative for foreign Affairs and security policy and defence Federica Mogherini outlined the main international priorities of the EU at the moment, among which is mentioned and our country. This writes Interfax-Ukraine.
“First of all, it is the Western Balkans. Can only agree with all that has been said about the necessity of rapprochement of the Balkans with the European Union. We must work tirelessly, with our friends from Pristina and Belgrade to come to full agreement with the aim to normalize their relations, thus paving the way to EU accession”, — said the head of EU diplomacy, speaking in the European Parliament on Tuesday in Strasbourg.
She also mentioned the European future of Macedonia.
The second priority, the high representative called Ukraine, but given that the question of the EU’s relations with Ukraine is to further the agenda of the plenary session of the European Parliament, Mogherini promised to speak about it later.
“The third priority that I would like to say today is the conflict in the Mediterranean region. And especially Syria, the beginning of a dialogue with Yemen in Sweden (…), and Libya and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict”, — said the head of European diplomacy.
According to Mogherini, the European Union has played, and must continue to play hard, fundamental role in supporting a political solution of each of these crises.
