EU High Representative Federica Mogherini today welcomed the outcome of the G7 Foreign Ministers' Meeting in Lucca.
“We adopted common positions on all the main international issues in line with EU policies,” she said after two days of intensive talks, covering Syria, the crisis in eastern Ukraine, the Middle East Peace Process, and security in Asia, Iran, Africa, Iraq and Libya. Thematic topics discussed included migration, maritime security, non-proliferation and disarmament, counter terrorism, climate change, peace and security in the framework of the United Nations, and cyber security.
Following last week’s Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region, organised and hosted by Mogherini, and the chemical weapons attack in Idlib, G7 foreign ministers also discussed the Syria crisis with their counterparts from a number of countries in the region, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Qatar.
Whilst in Lucca, the High Representative had several bilateral meetings and took part in a wreath-laying ceremony with Italian Foreign minister Alfano and US Secretary of State Tillerson in honour of the victims of the 1944 massacre in Sant’Anna di Stazzema.
