UK, French, German, Italian ministers to meet on Iran
Brussels, Belgium - The foreign ministers of Britain, France, Germany and Italy along with the EU diplomatic chief will hold talks in Brussels on the Iran and Libya crises, officials said.
The British Foreign Ministry said the talks would cover the fallout from the US killing of Qasem Soleimani as well as Tehran’s latest step back from the 2015 nuclear deal.
The situation in Libya, where strongman Khalifa Haftar's forces have seized the coastal city of Sirte, is also the agenda.
British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab will hold a one-on-one meeting with his French counterpart JeanYves Le Drian, who has warned Iran against retaliating over Soleimani's death, before joining the German and Italian ministers for talks on Libya. “The foreign secretary is travelling to Brussels today for talks with his European counterparts,” the British Foreign Ministry said.
