Written answers (Question to Foreign)

I met bilaterally with Portuguese Minister for Foreign Affairs Mr. Augusto Santos Silva when he visited Dublin in April 2018 and we are both regular attendees at meetings of the Foreign Affairs Council, which has responsibility for the EU’s external affairs.

While I have no plans to have another bilateral meeting with Minister Santos Silva in the immediate future, I will continue to engage regularly with him at EU-level and we will have further bilateral meetings where appropriate.
