Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, will receive Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, on July 31. This will be their first working meeting.
The discussions will focus on the major current international issues, notably Iran, the situation in Libya and the Sahel, as well as transatlantic relations. France and the United Kingdom engage in close and regular cooperation on all major international issues, regarding which we have a broad convergence of views.
The ministers will also take stock of our bilateral relations and the follow-up to the 35th UK-France summit, which took place in Sandhurst on January 18.
