European Union External Action

Remarks by the HR/VP Federica Mogherini upon arrival at the Informal Foreign Affairs Ministers meeting (Gymnich) in Amsterdam

Good morning.


We will have this morning a session with the ministers not only from the EU but also from all the candidate countries on migration. I expect we will have a substantial exchange, realising this is an issue crucial for all of us, none excluded, and it shows that we have to have a united management of migration and refugee flows that unites us much more than it can divide. We will try to work in this direction today with the countries that are facing similar challenges to those that are inside of the european borders.

Q. On closure of the borders

I dont think it is a solution.
