102 views

On 22 July 2013, Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the EC, chaired the 3254th meeting of the Foreign Affairs Council in Brussels. After the Council, Catherine Ashton held a press conference where she announced the European Union's decision to blacklist Hezbollah. The Council reiterated its deep concern about the situation in Egypt and welcomed the High Representative's recent and timely visit to Cairo. It stressed that the struggle for democracy should remain central and called on all political forces to engage now in a process of reconciliation and trust building for the good of the country and its democratic future. Egypt has to move rapidly to an inclusive democratic transformation process, including by the holding of democratic elections in the shortest possible time. Concerning the Middle East peace process, the Council warmly welcomed the announcement by Secretary of State John Kerry on 19 July 2013 that an agreement has been reached establishing a basis for resuming direct final status negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis. This is a crucial step towards achieving a lasting resolution to the conflict.
