Nathalie Tocci, die engste Beraterin der bisherigen EU-Außenbeauftragten Federica Mogherini zeigt sich äußerst zufrieden mit den Kandidaten für die EU-Spitzenposten. Bei Politico schreibt sie: „The nomination of Ursula von der Leyen at the helm of the European Commission and Josep Borrell as the EU’s foreign policy chief is good news for those wanting to beef up Brussels’ role in the world. […] Under her [Leyen] lead, the transformation of the Commission in the field of defense, spearheaded by the outgoing president Jean-Claude Juncker and High Representative Federica Mogherini, is guaranteed to keep moving forward, if not accelerate. […] The nomination of Borrell to succeed Mogherini is also good news. Unlike other names that had been floated in recent days, Borrell has real foreign policy experience, serving since 2018 as Spanish foreign minister in Pedro Sánchez’s socialist government.“ (jw)
