Mogherini: 'EU can play a role' against Islamic State

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini is in Turkey for talks with officials.

She is urging full participation in the fight against Islamic State militants in Syria.

Ms Mogherini and other top EU officials will urge Turkey to stop the flow of foreign fighters across its borders.

In an interview with the BBC's Lyse Doucet, Ms Mogherini said that while the crisis in Syria was not something that could be solved from Brussels, the EU still had a role to play.
