Background

The Council, chaired by EU High Representative Catherine Ashton, examines the situation in the EU’s Southern neighbourhood, focusing on developments in Egypt, following the High Representative recent trip to Cairo, and in Syria, concerning inter alia the destruction of chemical weapons.

In preparation for the Eastern Partnership summit on 28-29 November in Vilnius, the Council takes stock of developments regarding the EU’s Eastern Partnership, launched in May 2009 with the aim of accelerating political association and deepening economic integration with Eastern partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine). In this context, the Council also examines if the EU requirements for the signature of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement have been met.

Over lunch, ministers meet with Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, chairperson of the National League for Democracy in Myanmar/Burma.

In the margins of the Council, the first EU-Serbia Stabilisation and Association Council takes place.
