Foreign Affairs Council, 3330th meeting: round table

116 views

On 22 July 2014, Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and President of the Council, chaired the meeting of the Foreign Affairs Council in Brussels. The two main items on the agenda were the latest events in Ukraine and the Middle East peace process. The Ministers observed a minute of silence to pay tribute to the victims of the Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 crash. They called on the separatist groups in the area to ensure full, immediate, safe and secure access to the site in order to proceed with victim identification as well as to recover remains of those deceased. The EU supports the call for a full, transparent and independent international investigation in accordance with international civil aviation guidelines. In this context, the Council urged Russia to actively use its influence over the illegally armed groups. The Council agreed to accelerate the preparation of the sanctions agreed at the European Council of 16 July. It agreed to expand restrictive measures with a view to targeting individuals supporting or benefitting from Russian decision-makers responsible for the destabilisation of Eastern Ukraine. The Council also asked the Commission and the European External Action Service to finalise preparatory work on possible targeted measures and to present proposals for action, including on access to capital markets, defence, dual-use goods and sensitive technologies, including in the energy sector. In addition, the Council established the EU Advisory Mission for Civilian Security Sector Reform Ukraine, which will advise on a revised strategy for the civilian security sector in Ukraine. As regards the Middle East peace process, Ministers held an in-depth discussion on recent developments and called for an immediate cessation of the hostilities based on a return to the November 2012 ceasefire agreement. In this regard, the Council welcomed on-going efforts by regional partners, in particular by Egypt, and reiterated its readiness to provide the necessary support. This video shows the round table of the 3330th Council meeting.
