tai 30.08.2014-XNUMX-XNUMXEU leaders have appointed Italy’s Federica Mogherini as EU foreign policy chief and Poland’s Donald Tusk as European Council president. The announcement atėjo tweetais from the current council president, Herman Van Rompuy, at an EU summit. Mogherini, a centre-left politician, is Italy’s foreign minister. She will replace the UK’s Catherine Ashton. Tusk, Poland’s centre-right prime minister, has been Polish leader since 2007. He will chair EU summits.

The full-time appointments mean that the EU’s three top jobs are now filled. Tusk and Mogherini will work closely with the new European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker.

Tusk, 57, will serve for two-and-a-half years (renewable), starting on 1 December. Mogherini’s term, starting on 1 November, is five years.

Van Rompuy called Tusk “one of the veterans of the European Council”, the grouping of EU government leaders.

Jis yra vienintelis Lenkijos ministras pirmininkas, kuris buvo perrinktas nuo komunizmo žlugimo 1989 m.

Van Rompuy praised “the determined and confident way he has steered Poland through the economic crisis, and managed to maintain steady economic growth”.

Van Rompuy said Tusk would face three major challenges: the stagnating European economy, the Ukraine crisis and “Britain’s place in Europe”.

He said the EU leaders were convinced that Ms Mogherini, 41, “will prove a skilful and steadfast negotiator for Europe’s place in the world”.

He noted Italy’s “long-standing tradition of commitment to the European Union”.

Tusk then made a short address in Polish. He said that “in December I’ll be 100% ready” to speak English.

Mogherini, speaking fluent English, later said “the challenges are huge… all around Europe we have crises – on European soil, in Ukraine, and starting from Iraq and Syria, going to Libya”.

On arrival at the summit the European Parliament President Martin Schulz, a Socialist, spoke warmly of Mogherini, calling himself a “fan”. It was a strong indication that she would be a popular choice among MEPs.

The parliament’s approval is required for all 28 members of the new Commission, and the EU foreign policy chief, officially called the High Representative, is also a vice-president of the Commission.

Italy’s centre-left Prime Minister Matteo Renzi pushed hard for Ms Mogherini to get the job.

Tačiau praėjusį mėnesį ES nepavyko pasiekti sutarimo dėl jos kandidatūros, nes Baltijos šalys ir Lenkija laikė ją nepatyrusia ir pernelyg švelnia Rusijos atžvilgiu. Ji buvo tik nuo vasario Italijos užsienio reikalų ministrė.
