France, Austria foreign ministers discuss need for strengthening European support for Ukraine

17.01.2023

French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna and Austrian Federal Minister for European and International Affairs Alexander Schallenberg discussed the need to step up European support for Ukraine.

This is said in a statement released by the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Ukrinform reports.

“The ministers discussed the latest developments in the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine and stressed the need to step up European support for that country, in every sphere. In this respect, France welcomed Austria’s contribution to the solidarity effort for Ukraine,” the statement says.

The ministers also talked about the need “to strengthen Europe’s strategic autonomy”, particularly in the areas of industry, trade and energy. They also shared their approaches on the best way of supporting the EU’s enlargement to include the Western Balkans countries.

As earlier reported, Austria did not support a full ban on issuing Schengen visas to Russians.

  1. Shiver me timbers, of all the nations on this continent, it’s those two wanting to strengthen support of Ukraine. Okay, France seems to have awakened to reality, but Austria surprises me.
    Having said that, the two countries that are still disgusting are Switzerland and Germany (don’t consider Hungary a true country, being the slave of mafia land).

    • Austria is a crawling with putinoid filth; particularly Vienna. Its governments shill for the tiny prick.

      Putler attended the wedding of Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl; a double ugly nazi skank who danced with him. That was in 2018. I doubt if much has changed since then.
      Have a guess where the skank works now? That’s right fucking RaT.
      I hate Austria almost as much as Hungary and Serbia.

      • Yeah, I guess you’re right, scradge. The measure in the article must be some sort of smoke and mirrors.

  2. Except for Scandinavia, the Baltic States, Luxembourg, Slovakia and Poland i don’t trust anyone in Europe.

What is your opinion?
