FILE - In this Friday, July 25, 2014 file photo, Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini, foreground, looks on during a news conference with her Macedonian counterpart Nikola Poposki, right, at the Foreign Ministry in Skopje, Macedonia.

The position has gained profile in recent years with Ashton taking the lead in six-power negotiations on Iran's nuclear program that also involve the United States.  Italian Premier Matteo Renzi's office said Friday, Aug. 1, 2014,  it officially nominated Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini for the position, while the Polish government advertised its foreign minister, Radek Sikorski, as "just right" for the task.
