High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini met today with the US Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo.



They underlined the importance of transatlantic cooperation between the European Union and the United States on a wide range of foreign policy issues, including the current work towards a peaceful and democratic transition in Venezuela, the need to ensure a political transition in Syria,  support to peace in Afghanistan and to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula ahead of the upcoming US-DPRK summit. They also discussed the situation in Ukraine, as well as EU-US cooperation in the Western Balkans, in particular following the entry into force of the Prespa agreement and the US support for the EU-facilitated Serbia-Kosovo dialogue.
