EU has ‘responsibility’ to face migrant crisis: Mogherini

Washington (AFP) – The European Union has a duty to confront the flood of migrants reaching its shores, the EU’s foreign policy chief said Wednesday as she met top US officials seeking ways to deal with the exodus.

Some 1,750 migrants have died crossing the Mediterranean to Europe this year, 30 times more than during the same period in 2014.

“We know as Europeans we are living in one of the most complicated and dangerous places in the world today,” EU high representative Federica Mogherini said ahead of talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry.

“We know we have a special responsibility in trying to prevent and face this crisis”…

News for the idiot Mogherini: the “crisis” is permanent. It is caused by the expanding population of Africa who want to move to Europe’s greener pastures. If the Middle East calmed down tomorrow, the influx from Africa would continue.

Judging from the photographs of the people, they are largely sub-Saharan Africans.

More from this bird-brained fool: EU wants Iran to play ‘major but positive role’ in Syria: (Reuters) – The European Union’s top diplomat on Tuesday voiced the hope that Iran would play an important but constructive role in a renewed United Nations push to restart negotiations aimed at ending the four-year civil war in Syria.

The U.N. envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, has said he will begin meeting in May with the country’s government, opposition groups and regional powers including Iran to assess by the end of June whether there is any hope brokering an end to the war.

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who meets Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif later in New York on Tuesday, said it was crucial that the EU and six world powers successfully conclude nuclear talks with Tehran, which she said could boost Iran’s regional role in a positive manner.

Right! Iran has a sterling background of being a positive player on the world stage. Is she stupid or ill-informed or what?
