The Foreign Minister of Spain, Josep Borrell, as a candidate for the post of EU diplomacy head, who is also an EC deputy chairman by rank goes through hearings in the EP’s profile committee on foreign affairs on Monday.
“To understand the world and develop a common position, you need more than just a computer, you need the ability to understand points of view that can be opposite. Russia is a good example of this. It is necessary to maintain sanctions against the Russian Federation until changes in the behavior occur. This requires a lot of unity, it is enough for one state to vote against the extension of sanctions, so that they are out of date. Here is an example where unanimity is needed, ”said Josep Borrell, candidate for the post of new head of EU diplomacy.
