The US is losing its leadership in the world – the European Union, to the contrary, it is a reliable partner in solving the world’s problems, said the head of EU diplomacy Federica Mogherini.
“The EU has an opportunity to take the position of a reliable and strong partner in addressing major global challenges in the areas where Washington is losing its leadership,” – she said on Friday at a conference in Florence, Italy.
According to Federica Mogherini, during the recent Asian tour, where she also visited Moscow, she had heard the same sentiment being voiced as on the need for closer cooperation with Brussels. Not only in the economy and trade, but also in security and the resolution of regional crises – in Syria, on the Korean peninsula, Afghanistan and Palestine.
When asked about the “unpredictability” of US President Donald Trump, Federica Mogherini stated that “the European way is not to play with provocation.”
“People want to work with the EU, not because they love us, but because they know what to expect from us, and at this time of geopolitical unpredictability, it becomes added value” – said the head of European diplomacy.
