Met dank overgenomen van Duits voorzitterschap Europese Unie 2e helft 2020 (Duits Voorzitterschap), gepubliceerd op maandag 12 oktober 2020.

The meeting of EU Foreign Ministers on 12 October also focuses on the path to normalisation between Serbia and Kosovo, the Indo-Pacific region and Latin America - as well as on strengthening multilateralism.

When political crises occur in its immediate neighbourhood, Europe is called on to act - while it remains engaged in deepening its relations with Latin America and the Indo-Pacific region. These are, in a nutshell, the wide-ranging issues on the agenda of the EU Foreign Affairs Council in Luxembourg on 12 October. Foreign Minister Maas issued the following statement prior to the meeting:

We will discuss the Navalny case. The violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention must have consequences. Together with France, we have drafted a proposal that we will discuss for the first time today, and we will agree on a way forward.

According to the proposal, sanctions will be imposed on certain individuals in Russia with responsibility for the handling of chemical warfare agents.
