97 views

On 24 June 2013, Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, chaired the 3250th meeting of the Foreign Affairs Council in Luxembourg. The Council discussed the situation in Syria. After the meeting, Catherine Ashton underlined the EU's belief that the crisis must be solved through a political process. The Council held an in-depth debate on the Middle East peace process. Following the debate, Catherine Ashton reaffirmed the EU's commitment to a two-state solution and stressed that the EU fully supports the current efforts of the United States in support of the resumption of direct and substantial negotiations. The Council extended the mandate of the EU Special Representative for the Southern Mediterranean, Mr Bernardino León, until 30 June 2014. It also prolonged the mandate of Mrs Patricia Flor, EU Special Representative for Central Asia, until 31 October 2014. In order to facilitate diplomatic contacts between the EU and Belarus, the Council suspended the EU travel ban on Vladimir Makey, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs. This decision did not reflect any change in the EU's policy of critical engagement with Belarus. This video shows extracts of the arrivals of the EU Ministers for Foreign Affairs.
