Bilateral Meetings: EU-Japan
Her visit comes just three months after EU Foreign Ministers decided to enhance EU security cooperation in and with Asia. Federica Mogherini also represents the European Union in the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), where discussions are expected to focus on regional and global challenges, including maritime security, nuclear proliferation, climate change, and disaster management. It has been a packed day for her. Earlier today, she held several bilaterals with ministers, delivered a public lecture on The European Union as a Global Actor and met with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong - reaffirming strong EU-Singapore and EU-ASEAN ties at the beginning of Singapore’s role as coordinator for EU-ASEAN relations.
