Written answers (Question to Foreign)

The most recent meeting of the Foreign Affairs Council took place in Brussels on 13 May. Ministers did not discuss Israel and Palestine.

I do however expect that the Middle East Peace Process will be discussed at the forthcoming meeting of EU Foreign Ministers in Luxembourg on 18 June, since regional issues would be a natural topic for discussion with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Jordan, who is expected to be present.
