Secretary Blinken’s Call with EU High Representative Josep Borrell

The below is attributable to Spokesperson Ned Price:. Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken spoke today with EU High Representative Josep Borrell. The Secretary and HRVP Borrell reaffirmed their steadfast support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and underscored the importance of continued transatlantic unity in the face of Russian aggression in Ukraine. They condemned in the strongest terms the Russian Federation’s decision to recognize the “independence” of the purported republics in Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine and the order to dispatch additional Russian troops. The Secretary and the High Representative agreed that Russia’s flagrant violation of international law demands a firm response from the international community, beginning with the measures the United States, the EU, and other partners announced February 22. The Secretary reaffirmed the readiness of the United States, in coordination with the EU and other partners, to impose additional powerful sanctions and economic measures in the event of a further Russian invasion of Ukraine.

SECRETARY BLINKEN: I was just checking to make sure I can say good afternoon. It is good afternoon. Good afternoon, everyone.

The timing could not be more important; this is a pivotal moment.

SECRETARY BLINKEN: Well, good morning, everyone, and welcome. It’s wonderful to have our colleagues here. High Representative Borrell, Josep, so wonderful as always to be with you, to see you. Commissioner Simson, Ambassador Etienne, welcome to you all. And we are so delighted to welcome you to the State Department for what is a truly critical discussion and one that I think could not be more timely. We’ve had many engagements, conversations, meetings between the European Union and the United States over the past weeks and months, and Josep and I seem to be on speed dial, either video or telephone, but there is no substitute for actually being together in the same place. And as I like to say, either face to face or mask to mask, unfortunately, as the case may be.

Secretary Antony J. Blinken and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the European Commission Josep Borrell Before Their Meeting

SECRETARY BLINKEN: Good afternoon, everyone. It is a real pleasure to be able to spend some time with my good friend and colleague Josep Borrell. We’ve spent a lot of time already in recent months working very closely together, but really today building off of the very important and productive U.S.-EU summit that President Biden took part in. A lot of what we’ve been doing since then, including the establishment of the Trade and Technology Council, (inaudible) we look forward to in the coming weeks, and a lot to talk about about the work that we do together quite literally around the world, including, of course, Afghanistan, the Indo-Pacific, in Europe, and beyond.
