She made the statement prior to the beginning of the Brussels meeting of foreign and defense ministers of the EU. The main topic of discussion at the talks will be illegal immigration.

Mogherini noted that taking an overall political stance on the matter is of crucial importance. In her opinion there needs to be a mass operation that would aim at preventing immigrant smuggling and preparations for the program should start in the upcoming weeks.
