    On 8 July, at its last session before the summer recess, the European Parliament adopted with an overwhelming majority (549 for, 78 against, and 17 abstentions) the report of Elmar Brok on the "Proposal for a Council decision establishing the organisation and functioning of the European External Action Service." Thus the new diplomatic service can now become a reality. However, it seems that a genuine common EU foreign policy has receded even further into the distance. That is what Stefani Weiss from the Bertelsmann Stiftung wrote in our June 2010 edition of Spotlight Europe. Her analysis was greeted with acclaim both in Brussels and throughout the EU. We interviewed the EP negotiators on the EEAS, Elmar Brok (EEP) and Guy Verhofstadt (ALDE), and asked them to tell us what they think about the new diplomatic service and the prospects of a truly comprehensive EU foreign policy.
