Palestinian statehood, Georgia's Association Agreement, freedom of expression in Turkey, and the CIA - December's Plenary session of the European Parliament this week featured many important debates on the EU's external relations.

The European Union and its External Action Service played a significant role in 2014 in international efforts to solve major crises in Ukraine, Syria and Iraq, as well as an escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The EU also saw a change of leadership. For the EU's diplomatic service, this saw Federica Mogherini starting her mandate on November 1st as the Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice President of the Commission, building on the achievements of former High Representative Catherine Ashton. It has been an eventful and intense year for the EU's external action!

HR/VP Federica Mogherini's agenda this week included chairing the Foreign Affairs Council (FAC) and the EU-Ukraine Association Council, visiting Ukraine, hosting the Eurochanukah event, speaking to CSDP missions and operations and meeting the leadership of both Moldova and Kosovo.

She will also meet with the Speaker of the Council of Representative's (CoR) Ibrahim Al Jabouri.
