EU News 23/2016
High Representative Federica Mogherini was in Ankara today, co-chairing the EU-Turkey High-Level Dialogue, which sought to re-energise strategic cooperation between the EU and Turkey.
“We are re-launching, re-energising and revitalising our strategic cooperation into a broader cooperation because the relations between the European Union and Turkey in these months have been seen mainly through the angle of our common concern for the refugees that we have to protect and host and also our concern about the management of the flow in a coordinated way,” she said after the meeting she had, together with Commissioners Hahn and Stylianides, with the Turkish minister for Foreign affairs Cavasoglu and for European affairs Bozkir.
On the refugee issue, the two sides agreed that the Action Plan on Migration and Refugees adopted at the end of last year must be fully implemented.
