EU Foreign Affairs and Security Policy High Representative Federica Mogherini said on Friday that the best guarantee for the security of any country in the world is a well-functioning state, and particularly for any member of the EU is being a member of the EU itself.

Mogherini who was responding to a question after deliberations with Foreign Minister Iaonnis Kasoulides in Nicosia, about the EUs position as regards the issue of security and guarantees in Cyprus, pointed out that it is still for the parties to discuss these issues, adding that it is extremely important that the negotiations see the leaders taking decisions and finding solutions that can benefit the entire island.

“Obviously, the best guarantee for security of any country in the world is a well-functioning state, and particularly for any member of the EU is being a member of the EU itself.
