ROME, may 11. /TASS/. The creation of a professional army is necessary to ensure the security of the European Union. This was stated on Friday by the EU high representative for foreign Affairs and security policy Federica Mogherini, speaking at the conference “State of the Union” (The State of the Union) in Florence.
“For safety we need professional army,” — said Mogerini. She noted the need to combine “hard power and soft power”.
“Keeping the peace requires diplomacy, dialogue, in other words, the soft power, but sometimes [required] and hard power,” she said.
The head of European diplomacy said that currently the world is in “chaos”.
“The mood of our world — the destruction and mutual insults, when it will not help solve any of the problems. We need calm, reasonable, patient compromise,” concluded Mogherini.
