Mogherini: “Christianity was born in Middle East, it belongs to Middle East!”

When freedom of religion or belief comes under attack in many parts of our world, we have the duty to preserve this diversity. Christianity was born in Middle East, it belong to Middle East!” says EU’s Highe Representative for Foreign Policy Federica Mogherini during a European Parliament debate on the situation of Christians in Middle East.

Entire Christian communities have been forced to leave their home countries. The phenomenon is not new, but what is new is the trend that is now more worrying than ever. (…) if the Middle East loses its incredibly diversity, it would also lose its greatest richness. For this reason, the European Union is engaged in a daily basis to protect all minorities!” she also added.
