EC: President Juncker will lead the EU delegation in Geneva and the importance of this is evident

“Today I can confirm that the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, will lead the EU mission in Geneva,” said European Commission Chief Spokesperson Margaritis Schinas to CNA. Schinas was also asked to clarify whether EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and other EU delegates will travel to Geneva with Juncker.

Schinas explained that “as indicated by the text of the conclusions of the Summit, Cyprus is an EU member state and a reunited Cyprus would continue to be an EU member state, so the great importance of President Juncker participation is evident, as he was in close contact with the two leaders all this time. We will come back with the full composition of the mission,” Schinas concluded.
