The EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Josep Borrell, spoke with the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken on Tuesday. It happened just 20 days after their previous meeting in Brussels.

Borrell and Blinken discussed the recent developments in Ukraine and expressed their deep concern over the large ongoing build-up of Russian military forces on Ukraine’s borders and in illegally-annexed Crimea.

They agreed to continue to work together on the stabilisation of Afghanistan and exchanged views on the on-going crisis in Ethiopia.

Both referred to the situation in Iran and the state of play of the ongoing discussions to bring the JCPOA back to full implementation.

High Representative Borrell and Secretary Blinken agreed to continue to work together on these and other foreign and security policy priorities and challenges.

On Wednesday, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, will meet with Secretary Blinken, and with US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd J. Austin III, at NATO Headquarters.

A meeting by video conference of the North Atlantic Council with the participation of NATO ministers of foreign affairs and of defense will also take place, with Antony Blinken and Lloyd J. Austin III present in Brussels.
