BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:55 A.M.) – High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Brussels on Tuesday, with the Syrian crisis reportedly topping the agenda.

Speaking at a press conference after the meeting, Mogherini said, “We are not a military player in Syria. We decided not to be, and if I can add, we are even proud not being one. But, what we can do, and we are doing day by day more, is using the support we can give politically, but also financially, to the political process based on military agreements,” in reference to the Astana peace talks.

Mogherini added, “the European Union is ready to come in with all its strength — financial, political, organisational, diplomatic, and so on and so forth, convening power, — to support the going back to normal life inside Syria.”

Pity this lady’s words are worth nothing.
She isn’t anything like a “foreign affairs minister”. EU is not a state, any decision is to be agreed upon between the member states, and even when a common ground is reached the single member can call itself out from actively participating in the deal. Basically, Mogherini is but a speakerperson and when she talks about what EU did/does/will do (in absence of an already issued “resolution”) that is just her opinion/hope/wishful thinking.

The reality of US/NATO aggression around the globe is ever more apparent
as the flotsam of unnecessary conflicts lands on Italian beaches.

The US has effectively created a system of corrupt and pliant warlords in far off lands that result in cheap resources for the US and poverty for the general populations.

“The reality of US/NATO aggression around the globe is ever more apparent” => EU doesn’t gives a fuck about NATO any more, this is official since May 17th when pre. J.C.Juncker announced the build up of the EU-Army. It was the Perfidious Albion AKA the Yankee Poodle AKA ‘the 52nd State’ AKA “the ones soon to be formerly known as United Kingdom” that made it impossible until recently by having always vetoed it, so… Thanks to UK’s BrExit, the EU construction can really resume! We already feel it even in the economy! “as the flotsam of unnecessary conflicts lands on… Read more »

I agree with much of what you say Deashbag. There would be great joy in my heart if the US were to remove all her troops etc from The UK and Europe. As for the immigrants, they are all yours 🙂 we still have mines and barbed wire to keep them out and it would give the British army something to do , rather than destroying other peoples countries. This will amuse you. I am informed that Chinese cranes were purchased by the dockyard building the latest British carrier ( the one with no aircraft for 10 years ish ).… Read more »

“Pity this lady’s words are worth nothing.”
=> Just the words of an entity that weights as much as the US economy and more than the Chinese one.

“EU is not a state, any decision is to be agreed upon between the member states…/…that is just her opinion/hope/wishful thinking”
=> Yeah, that’s we want the others to believe! 😀

“EU is not a state, any decision is to be agreed upon between the member states”

That’s why the EU is in a mess. Perhaps Emperor Macron will change all that 🙂
