This week marked 100 days in office for Federica Mogherini. It also saw her chairing a Foreign Affairs Council that focused on counter-terrorism and the unfolding situation in Ukraine. This was also a key issue at the European Council and during the European Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg. The High Representative also facilitated a dialogue meeting between the Prime Ministers of Serbia and Kosovo, which finalised the agreement on justice and judiciary in ‪‎Kosovo. She also met Palestinian President Mahmoud ‪Abbas and chaired the seventh EU-Lebanon Association Council.

Today's attacks on the Lebanese-Israeli border are undermining the cessation of hostilities established by UNSC Resolution 1701 and the peacebuilding efforts along the Blue Line.

The threats to Israel on its Northern border must stop. The EU calls for an immediate cessation of hostilities. An escalation of violence could be detrimental to the region as a whole in these difficult times.


Les attaques menées ce jour à la frontière libano-israélienne compromettent le processus de cessation des hostilités mis en place par la résolution 1701 du Conseil de sécurité et les efforts de consolidation de la paix déployés le long de la Ligne bleue.

Les menaces auxquelles est confronté Israël sur sa frontière septentrionale doivent cesser. L'UE demande l'arrêt immédiat des hostilités. En ces temps difficiles, l'escalade de la violence pourrait avoir des effets préjudiciables sur la région tout entière.
