New Europe (c)
Seems like an awkward moment of the EU's external relations is about to occur. As situation after the unconfirmed usage of chemical weapon in Syria caused a need of urgent reaction among certain western countries (namely USA, France and the UK), we are close to experience another mismatch and lack of coordination between the EU and its Member States. At the very same day, head of the EEAS Catherine Ashton talks about the continuation of political dialogue under Geneva negotiations, while at the same time François Hollande states that peace talks should resume and express his readiness to attack Syria.
While general situation regarding Syria is rather fishy, let's hope that traditional 'hawks' of the EU Member States will show more willingness at least to coordinate more in order to avoid another Arab Spring type of failure.. After 3 years of existence, argument about newly established department is not valid any more.
