Visit of Catherine Ashton, Vice-President of the EC, to Abu Dhabi

Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the EC, made a four days visit in the Gulf States. The Vice-President notably visited Abu Dhabi where she met with Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Emirian Minister for Foreign Affairs. They together attended the 21st EU/Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) joint council and ministerial meeting.
The Ministers for Foreign Affairs discussed developments in the Gulf States region, underlining its strategic importance. They condemned violence in all its forms and expressed their deep regret for the human losses. They also stressed their readiness to strengthen consultation and coordination and to mobilise appropriate support for countries across the region if and when requested. Both the EU and GCC Ministers agreed that every situation was unique, but there was a common need for each country to find its own ways to enable people’s aspirations to be addressed, peacefully and constructively, in full respect of the rule of law, human rights and fundamental freedoms.
This was the first official visit to the Gulf region for Catherine Ashton.
