Egypt FM heads for Brussels to take part in EU Foreign Affairs Council Meeting

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry left for Brussels from Paris, on Sunday 26/05/2024, to take part in the European Union’s Foreign Affairs Council Meeting with the participation of a number of Arab foreign ministers to discuss the situation in Gaza, Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry Ahmed Abu Zeid said.

The participation comes as part of continued and intensified Arab consultations with European parties to end the war on Gaza in a bid to stem bloodshed and prevent a full explosion of the situation in the Palestinian territories.

Shoukry will hold several meetings with senior European officials, including EU foreign and security affairs representative Josep Borrell and a number of his European counterparts, to mull ways of ending the current Gaza Strip crisis and creating political prospects to revive the peace process in order to achieve the two-state solution and set up an independent Palestinian state within 1967 borders.

Shoukry will also take part in a number of ministerial meetings to discuss the tragic humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, especially the catastrophic situation in the Palestinian city of Rafah.
