“‘Salam alikoum’, may peace be with you. There is no stronger message that we can pass to the people of the Middle East and to the people of Europe, together, jointly”, EU High Representative Federica Mogherini said during a visit to Jordan on Tuesday 22 March 2016.
Today, “Europe and its capital are suffering the same pain that this region has known and knows every single day, be it in Syria, be it elsewhere (…) it is quite clear that the roots of the pain we are suffering around our region are very much the same and that we are united in not only suffering victims, but also reacting to these acts and preventing radicalisation and violence together”.
She added: “we have a strong friendship, and let me say that Jordan is for the European Union one of the strongest, if not the strongest partner, on so many different issues.”
