The European Union stands in full solidarity with Greece and Cyprus regarding recent actions by Turkey in the Eastern Mediterranean, including the Aegean Sea. Turkey needs to respect the sovereignty and the sovereign rights of all EU Member States, as stressed repeatedly by the European Council and in Council conclusions, most recently in June 2019.
Thank you for inviting me, I am very happy to participate in your work. It is true, it is my second day in office. Yesterday was the first one. I had the opportunity to participate in the opening of the Climate Change Conference the COP 25 in Madrid, immediately after I went to Paris for the mourning of the French soldiers killed in Mali. This is my third activity. As you can see, it is a varied menu.
Today marks the first day of United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP25, taking place in Madrid until 13 December. It is also one of the first activities for Josep Borrell in his role as EU High Representative.
