We propose a consistent approach to describe soft interactions at LHC and higher energies based on the BFKL Pomeron and CGC/saturation. We assume that the same Pomeron describes both “soft” and “hard” interactions. Having eight parameters we obtain a good description of the elastic and inclusive proton-proton data at energies W ≤ 0.546 TeV.
