US Secretary of State Antony Blinken attended the EU Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Brussels on Monday via videolink.

At the top of the agenda of the meeting was tension over Ukraine with Russia, which has denying plans for aggression but has tens of thousands of troops on the border.

The EU has been largely on the sidelines by face-to-face talks between Russia and the United States, the latest round of which took place on Friday between Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergeń≠ Viklov in Geneva.

EU ministers arriving at the meeting on Monday called for unity and threatened with serious consequences if Russia invaded.
