Italy's Mogherini says EU must keep diplomatic path open on Ukraine
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini, appointed the European Union's new foreign policy chief, said on Saturday that the EU must keep the path to a diplomatic solution of the Ukraine crisis open even as it worked on new sanctions against Russia.
"As we think and we work on the level of sanctions, we also have to keep the diplomatic way open ... hoping that the combination, a wise combination, can be effective," she told a news conference in Brussels after her appointment was announced.
