“Our goal is still” to give 1 million rounds of ammunition to Ukraine. This was stated by the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, in a press conference at the conclusion of the work of the European Union Foreign Affairs Council. “Initially we tried to achieve this goal through three lines. The first line, in the short term, was to ask our armies to take up their reserves. This first phase ended and more than 300,000 ammunition was provided. This contribution was from existing storage. We are now on the production line. There are many contracts signed and production lines have started production. Borrell explained that the third line is to increase the absorptive capacity, which will of course be in the medium term, and not until the end of the month or the end of the year. “We are still striving to achieve this goal, and we may not reach it by the end of the year. But it will depend on how quickly contracts are signed and implemented and production progress progresses. And let’s not forget that we export a large amount of what we produce. He added: “Part of what we produce we export to third countries, and the solution may be to redirect this quantity to Ukraine as a priority.”

Borrell also spoke about the Middle East and the crossings for humanitarian aid into Gaza. The Rafah crossing is “insufficient” to deliver the humanitarian aid that the Gaza Strip needs in sufficient quantities, and therefore access must be “increased,” which can be done by “opening other crossings” or by exploiting the “sea corridor.” Via Cyprus, even if Gaza “lacks ports,” “floating ports” should be built, which is “under consideration.” This was stated by the High Representative of the European Union, Josep Borrell, at a press conference in Brussels at the conclusion of the Foreign Affairs Council meeting.
Josep Borrell then addressed the issue related to the Spanish situation. “I am here now as the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Policy, and I cannot confuse my roles, and I cannot allow myself to express personal considerations on a matter related to Spanish internal politics. This does not mean that I do not have my opinion, and sooner or later I will express it, but now is not the time.” appropriate for that.” This is how the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, responded in the press conference held at the end of the meeting of the European Union Foreign Affairs Council, to a question about Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez granting amnesty to the Catalan independents to lock down the country.
