Ahead of emergency EU foreign ministers council Friday

(ANSA) - Rome, August 13 - Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini on Wednesday urged EU foreign ministers to come up with "strong, coordinated action" on Iraq, Libya and Gaza, the ministry said in a note. "There must be not only a joint declaration on all three crisis areas, but a decision on a joint, strong, and coordinated action," the minister said ahead of an emergency meeting of European Union foreign ministers Friday.

Italy and France had called for the meeting in the face of a humanitarian crisis in northern Iraq, jihadist Islamic State (IS) militias are reportedly driving hundreds of thousands from their homes.
