I am delighted to welcome you Prime Minister Garibashvili, together with the new Foreign Minister Beruchashvili and other Georgian government representatives, to Brussels today for the first EU-Georgia Association Council meeting.

Thank you very much,

I apologise for being late. That was not out of major divisions or discussions but out of real in-depth conversation on all the points that we had on the agenda, with all the ministers concentrating on the two main political issues that we decided to have on the agenda today: which is on one side Ukraine, and on the other side the Middle East Peace Process. But we also touched upon other issues to which I will come afterwards.

Good morning!

We have a new start this morning. Not only for Europe, as the Commission's slogan says, but also for Foreign Policy. We will start with the Ministers early this morning with a discussion on the working methods. If we want to be effective in the world, we need to be effective starting from here, from Brussels. So, we will try to share our common vision and make it owned by all the 28 Member States.

The signing of the Charter for the Transition on 16 November and the appointment of Michel Kafando as President of the Transition are key steps to exit the crisis based on dialogue and national consensus.

They bear witness to the sense of responsibility of the Burkinabe people and all participants in the democratic process.

It is now up to all parties to work towards the effective and swift establishment of bodies for a civilian-led transition leading to free, inclusive, peaceful and transparent democratic elections by November 2015 at the latest.

The agreement reached yesterday between the federal government of Iraq and the government of the Kurdistan Region on the transfer of revenues and oil between Baghdad and Erbil is a crucial development which ended a long dispute between the two entities.

All the parties involved have shown the leadership and willingness to compromise that was needed to resolve an issue of key importance at a critical time for the country. The agreement bodes well for further steps to promote dialogue and reconciliation within the framework of the constitution.

Following reports of a cease-fire breach on 12 November 2014 along the Line of Contact, in which a military helicopter is reported to have been shot down, it is essential that all sides show restraint and avoid any actions or statements which could escalate the situation. Furthermore, we call for an investigation into this incident.

The eighth annual Structured Dialogue meeting between the European Union (EU) and the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSARG) took place today (November 11) in Brussels. The Structured Dialogue is an effective high-level platform for the EU and the HKSARG to discuss issues of common interest based on a mutually agreed agenda.
