Federica Mogherini was in Luxembourg today to chair the Foreign Affairs Council in the Defence Ministers' format. The meeting's first session focused on Afghanistan, hours after a new deadly attack in central Kabul. Today's attack "shows us how fragile the security situation is in the country," Mogherini commented at the end of the meeting. Protracted violence confirms "the need to continue to work with a lot of energy and attention, in partnership with the Afghan leadership, to stabilise the country," the High Representative added.
I chaired this morning the Foreign Affairs Council in the formation of Defence Ministers after a long day yesterday of the Foreign Ministers' meeting, as well as a joint Foreign and Defence Ministers' meeting yesterday evening on Libya.
Le 19 avril 2016, le Conseil a approuvé la mise en place d'une mission militaire de formation en République centrafricaine (EUTM RCA) en vue de contribuer à la réforme du secteur de la défense dans le pays.
