Double Mogherini-Tusk will face challenges in the South and East of the Union

The Polish Prime Minister, Donald Tusk, will be the next President of the European Council; and the head of Italian diplomacy, Federica Mogherini, will be high representative for Foreign Affairs.

Taking the criticism of being fluent in the English language, used extensively in the negotiations, Tusk made a pun: "nothing is good enough for Europe, including my current level of English. But I'm polishing my English. And, like I said, I will be ready in December, 100%. Don't worry ".

The appointments were made by the heads of State and Government of the European Union, an extraordinary Summit, this Saturday in Brussels.

On the Russian-Ukrainian crisis, the future head of European diplomacy said that "we all know that the military solution is not the solution to the crisis, taking into account the interests of Ukrainians in the first place. Therefore, while we work on new sanctions, we also have to keep open the diplomatic channel. Our job is to do both. "

In the Face of worsening Russian interference in Ukraine in recent days, the European Council should decide by the increase of sanctions against Moscow.
