BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union leaders are set to decide who will be the 28-nation bloc's foreign policy chief for the next five years, with Italy's top diplomat Federica Mogherini widely seen as the front-runner for the prestigious job.

"The bringing of Russian forces onto Ukrainian territory requires an appropriate response from the EU." (Writing by Richard Balmforth;
