Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, will visit Egypt on January 11.
The minister will take part in a working meeting devoted to the Middle East peace process together with his Egyptian, German and Jordanian counterparts. This is the third meeting in this format. In the positive regional context linked to the normalization and re-establishment of relations between Israel and several Arab states, the aim is, at the same time, to help bring about the resumption of dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians, with a view toward resolving the conflict within the framework of international law and the agreed parameters.
Jean-Yves Le Drian will also have bilateral exchanges with the Egyptian authorities. The minister will notably discuss the regional crises on which our countries maintain close dialogue, especially Libya, the Middle East peace process, Lebanon and the eastern Mediterranean.
