EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini said that there is a broad European consensus on preserving the Operation Sophia in the Mediterranean.

"The operation has contributed to an 80 percent decrease in the number of immigrant arrivals in Europe, as well as the destructing of human traffickers' boats, in addition to training more than 300 officers of the Libyan Coast Guard," Mugherini stated Thursday following EU defense ministers meeting in Romania.
