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.

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.

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.

High Representative Federica Mogherini chaired the Foreign Affairs Council today for the first time. Ukraine was the main focus of discussion with EU Foreign Ministers.

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.

"The latest act of terror perpetrated by a suicide bomber targeting a Government Senior School in Potiskum, Yobe state, killing at least 47 children and leaving over 79 injured is appalling.

"The agreement between all parties, announced in Ouagadougou on 5 November 2014, on the underlying principles of a political transition led by civilian figures to allow the prompt restoration of constitutional order, is a step in the right direction.

The commitment of ECOWAS, the African Union and the United Nations has been a crucial part of this process, in particular the African Union statement of 3 November and then the Extraordinary Summit of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government on 6 November, which also discussed the role of the army.
