Laurent Fabius’s participation in the EU’s Extraordinary Foreign Affairs Council (Brussels, Aug. 15)

Laurent Fabius, minister of foreign affairs and international development, will attend tomorrow’s extraordinary meeting in Brussels of the Foreign Affairs Council, convened at his behest. The following items will be on the agenda:

-  Iraq: Laurent Fabius will discuss his recent trip to Baghdad and Erbil. Per France’s request, the challenge for the European Union is to increase both humanitarian and military assistance to threatened populations in northern Iraq.

-  Middle East/Gaza peace process: The ministers will discuss the state of the Cairo negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis. It is important for the EU to provide assistance, as proposed by France, Germany and the United Kingdom, to facilitate the transition from a truce to a lasting ceasefire, for example by reactivating and extending the EUBAM Rafah border monitoring mission.

-  Ukraine: The minister will discuss the situation on the ground and will stress the need for a political solution.
