The diplomat Félix Fernández-Shaw delivered a lecture on international relations in common in Europe
“A common foreign policy does not exist”. This was the resounding statement delivered by Félix Fernández-Shaw, a member of the Cabinet of Federica Mogherini, High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security Policies of the European Union, during the talk, “European Foreign Policy: Why do we Need it and How are Decisions Made?”, organized by the Departamento de Relaciones Internacionales (Department of International Relations) of the Facultad de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales (Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences) at Comillas. “We lack unanimity, among other things, because France and the United Kingdom have a seat on the Security Council of the United Nations: they are the ones that lead, and they defend their own interests”, stated this diplomat regretfully, as well as referring to the case of refugees. “Common decisions are not made because Heads of State have a wide margin to take their own decisions”.
