Mogherini: we need to build common ground not ban
EU News 18/2017
The High Representative / Vice-President addressed the European Parliament on the travel restrictions introduced last week by the U.S. President’s Executive Order.
The European Union disagrees with the travel restrictions introduced last week by the U.S. President’s Executive Order and will remain open to all those with the right to international protection, High Representative Federica Mogherini told the European Parliament today.
“As a good friend of the United States, I believe Europe has a duty to be clear – respectful and clear - whenever a disagreement arises, especially when it relates to our fundamental values,” the High Representative said. “And we certainly disagree with the Executive Order issued by the President of the United States on 27 January, as many in the U.S. seem to disagree too.”
