The High Representative/Vice-president Federica Mogherini has been invited to brief the UN Security Council on Monday 11 May in New York on the situation in the Mediterranean  following the Special meeting of the European Council on 23 April.

This comes after a series of high level contacts led by the HRVP Mogherini with the EU Members of the UN Security Council, the US, Russia, and China to exchange views and coordinate positions on the fight against trafficking organisations.

The HRVP also discussed with the African Union and Arab countries the need to work in partnership to address the root causes of illegal migration, tackle emergency situations and prevent criminal organisations from operating against vulnerable people.
