Foreign Ministers' Meeting, 11 May

 

I am happy to welcome the Foreign Ministers from the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean in Vienna on May 11th. Our meeting will take place on the eve of the IV Summit of Heads of State and Government of the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean to be held under the theme “Strengthening the bi-regional strategic association”.

The Foreign Ministers of the two regions will use their meeting on May 11th to prepare the Summit of the following day. We will also take advantage of this opportunity to have an open and fruitful exchange of views on issues that matter to both regions and to our partnership.

Particular emphasis will be given to the opportunities and challenges of a joint EU-LAC approach to multilateral issues. Vienna is a very appropriate venue for this discussion, as one of the United Nations headquarters and host city for approximately 30 international organisations and offices.

I look forward to achieving a positive outcome to our discussions and thus to preparing the ground for a successful EU-LAC Summit.

 

Ursula Plassnik
Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs
