Anne Brasseur looks forward to promising co-operation with Federica Mogherini

During her visit to PACE President Anne Brasseur in Strasbourg, Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini reiterated her interest and willingness to address PACE at one of its forthcoming sessions. Following her appointment as EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, she had to cancel her participation in PACE’s autumn session, starting on 29 September in Strasbourg.

As a member of the Italian delegation to the Assembly from 2008 to 2013, Mrs Mogherini is very familiar with PACE’s working structures and the values it stands for, Mrs Brasseur said, stressing that she looked forward to promising co-operation with the designated EU High Representative.

Mrs Mogherini concluded by saying that the parliamentary dimension was crucial to re-connecting Europe with the people, and she agreed with the PACE President to hold regular exchanges of view on topics of common interest.
