Foreign Minister Maas in Brussels
Foreign Minister Heiko Maas is today (13 April) in Brussels. He will be holding political talks with Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders, the President of the European Commission, Jean Claude Juncker, the EU’s High Representative, Federica Mogherini, the First Vice President of the European Commission, Frans Timmermans, and the President of the S&D (Socialists & Democrats) Group in the European Parliament, Udo Bullmann.
The discussions will focus on European issues and current international developments.
Speaking in Brussels, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said:
In the wake of the Brexit decision, and given the developments we are seeing in our Central and Eastern European neighbours, ensuring the cohesion of the European Union is a major shared goal. And all the discussions about reform that are going on within the Union must not be a matter for negotiations exclusively between two states, but must be a project for all Member States, and everyone must be on board.
