 "As two global powers, we both understand that our cooperation is essential to address the main challenges we face. If we want to preserve global multilateral systems in order to deal with global issues more effectively, engagement with China is an absolute must.”
 
Mogherini said that cooperation on issues where the EU and China do not share the same objectives could still be beneficial.
