Estonia: EU bolstering anti-trafficking efforts in Africa; boosting defence cooperation — Mogherini

High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said the EU was increasing financial support to combat «terrorist» and trafficking networks in the Sahel and the Horn of Africa, speaking from Tallinn, Thursday. «On the Sahel and the Horn of Africa, all the member states and all the ministers expressed strong support to an increased work of the EU in both... Еще regions as both of them are strategically important for the security of the European citizens,» said Mogherini. Furthermore, Mogherini touched upon joint European defence projects, saying: «the work we are doing on the European defence is not necessarily about additional resources but it's about spending together, it's about cooperating.» She added: «what the European Union can provide is a common platform for investing together and in this manner making the most out of the investments that might be already there or might be increased. This is a national choice.» Mogherini was attending an informal meeting of defence ministers in Tallinn at which the issue of Turkey's possible membership of the EU was also discussed. The matter won't be decided on this year, the foreign minister of Estonia is reported to have said.
