Libya Discussed by EU Foreign Ministers

Libya, counter-terrorism and Eastern partnership discussed by EU Foreign Ministers

The developments in Libya, counter terrorism initiatives, and the EU's partnership with Eastern countries were discussed when EU foreign Ministers held their last meeting of 2015 in Brussels on Monday 14 December.

Ministers discussed Sunday's Rome conference on Libya and held talks with the UN Secretary General's Envoy Martin Kobler. The High Representative said that the EU agreed it must be a "Libya led process" and that what was needed was "unity, action - and fast".

Ministers also had talks with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, where they discussed Syria, the fight against Da'esh, foreign fighters and Libya.

The High Representative said they discussed the Middle East Peace Process and the guidelines on the indication of origin. She said this is not and should not be seen as a boycott, and that the EU was fully united and determined to move forward on the Middle East Peace Process.

The meeting also saw EU Foreign Ministers discuss the state of play of the EU's relations with its eastern neighbours.
