Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission met with Vatican's officials. Among those were His Eminence Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State of the Holy See, and H.E. Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, Secretary for Relations with States.
The sides discussed a wide range of questions, including the ongoing conflicts across the globe.
''The third ministerial dialogue focused on Latin America (Venezuela and Nicaragua); the Middle East and particularly Syria; Russia and Ukraine; the Western Balkans; Africa; and multilateralism'', reads the message at the European External Action Service's website.
Earlier, Mogherini supposed that the European Commission would extend the sanctions against Russia for the annexation of Ukraine's Crimea.
