Mogherini: US May Destabilize World

The US, polarized and divided as never before, could become a destabilizing factor for the rest of the globe unless it stays “domestically strong and united”, Federica Mogherini warned after her first meeting with the Trump administration in Washington.
“I have never seen the US so polarized, divided and burdened by conflicts as now. However, the one who would like to play a global leadership role needs to be internally strong, self-confident and cohesive,” the chief of EU diplomacy told Die Welt on Wednesday, RT reported.
Mogherini maintained that current developments in the US will surely have ramifications for international stability.
“If the greatest democracy in the world is beset with tensions of such scale, then it becomes a destabilizing factor for the rest of the globe,” she said.
As some important elements of Trump’s foreign policy remain obscure–aside from hawkish agendas towards Iran and China–the European diplomacy should carefully tackle various themes to find out “where our positions coincide”, Mogherini said.
“Probably, there will be more issues in which Europe’s [interests] will be different from those of the US administration,” she asserted, adding that the new reality is “no drama”.
In the coming years, Mogherini predicted, both sides will cooperate to have “mature relationships” based on “respective autonomous positions”.
Speaking at the Atlantic Council during her two-day visit to Washington last week, Mogherini resorted to heightened rhetoric, saying that some in the Trump administration invited the Europeans “to dismantle what we have managed to build and which has brought us not only peace, but also economic strength”.
