MADRID (Sputnik) – The still Spanish Foreign Minister, Josep Borrell, was approved by most European Parliament groups to become the next High Representative of the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy.
Borrell passed this October 7 the well-known ‘examination’ of the MEPs of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, who asked him for three hours on various issues in the international arena.
“Our colleague Josep Borrell was appointed High Representative of the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy. We want to indicate our satisfaction and pride that a socialist partner has such a high level career,” the Spanish socialists said in their social networks.
The Spanish politician will take office from November 1, after receiving great support from the chamber, with only the votes against from the ultra right, the Identity and Democracy group, where the French National Regrouping of Marine Le Pen or Matteo Salvini League are.
