First of all, on the developments in the north-east of Syria. I imagine you have seen the Council conclusion already.

SOT, Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy: "We call for a ministerial meeting of the global coalition because we see as one of the most immediate consequences of these military activities in the north-east of Syria the fact that Daesh [Islamic State] could refind its breathing space inside this territory that worries us enormously. This is direct security threat to the European Union. Not only to the European Union first and foremost to the regional community, so we want to see this tackled in the global coalition format."
