Ministers will examine the political and humanitarian situation in Syria. Over lunch, EU Foreign Affairs Ministers will hold an important exchange of views with the Lebanese Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gebran Bassil who is asking the EU to offer his country the same level of support as the one granted to Turkey to deal with the massive influx of migrants.
The Council will also discuss the situation in Belarus and how to improve the relationship with this country which has acted as a “honest broker” in the Russia-Ukraine issue.
