Federica Mogherini Biography

Title:
High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“The inauguration of the new government will also allow to re-launch the Palestinian/Israeli peace negotiations as soon as possible, with the aim of achieving a comprehensive agreement towards the creation of an independent, democratic, contiguous and viable Palestinian State living side by side with Israel in peace and security. The Israeli people and the Palestinian people deserve not only a future, but also a present of peace after too much suffering.”
