Let me start by saying that I am honoured and proud to pay this first visit here. We were together in the headquarters in Rome few months ago. And we are here exactly one year after we saw the tragic loss of lives in this very same sea - it was on the 18 April last year. 


The High Representative was today in Lampedusa to visit for the first time a EUNAVFOR MED flagship. The visit in to the vessel ITS Cavour included a briefing on the state of play of the Operation Sophia on site, its work and achievements.


The annual spring meeting of the donor coordination group in support of the Palestinian economy, the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC), will be held in Brussels on Tuesday, 19 April. The meeting is hosted by the EU High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini, and presided by the Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende in his capacity as the Chair of the AHLC. Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, will also participate.

La haute représentante s'est rendue à Lampedusa afin de visiter pour la première fois un navire amiral de l'EUNAVFOR MED. Lors de la visite du porte-avions Cavour, elle a été informée de l’état d’avancement de l’opération Sophia et de ses résultats.

Avec l'attaque contre les forces françaises de Barkhane au nord du Mali, qui a tué trois soldats français, les terroristes ont démontré une fois de plus qu'ils s'opposent aux aspirations du peuple malien à vivre en paix.


The attack on French Barkhane forces in northern Mali, in which three French soldiers were killed, once again shows that terrorists oppose the Malian people's aspiration to live in peace.


Today’s appointment of a new government in Ukraine, headed by Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, is a crucial development at a time when new momentum in the country is badly needed. Having met Mr Groysman in his previous capacity as the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada many times, including very recently, we look forward to working with him to build a stronger Ukraine, on the basis of fundamental reform and accountable governance.
