Luxembourg, 30 Dzulhijjah 1436/13 October 2015 (MINA) – EU foreign ministers are to discuss Turkey’s relationship with Europe as they gather for a meeting in Luxembourg on Monday, the bloc’s foreign policy chief said.
“It is very clear that the EU and Turkey share now more than ever a common agenda when it comes to the security and the stability of the region and peace in the region,” Federica Mogherini told reporters ahead of the scheduled meeting, which follows Saturday’s suicide bomb attack in Ankara that killed 97, World Bulletin quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
“We are going to be talking about Turkey in the wake of a terrible disaster, Turkey’s relationship with the European Union and the role it plays in the migration crisis,” British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said.
The meeting will also focus on the Syrian conflict, Mogherini added. She described Russian intervention in Syria as extremely dangerous. (T/P006/R04)
