The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, is on a mission to Brussels running until tomorrow, 3 February, to attend the 24th EU-ASEAN Ministerial Meeting, as well as an informal meeting of EU Foreign Affairs Ministers (Gymnich).

The EU-ASEAN Ministerial Meeting will be co-chaired by the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, and the Philippines’ Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Enrique Manalo. Since 2020, the relationship between the two organisations has been elevated to Strategic Partnership, deepening a fruitful political and security collaboration. A partnership also strengthened by virtue of the 2021 EU Strategy for Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific.

“ASEAN is an essential interlocutor for the growth and stability of the Indo-Pacific and Italy intends to continue to invest in relations with this regional organisation, of which we are a Development Partner”, stressed Tajani, who also recalled how “the stability, prosperity and security of the Indo-Pacific, a crucial region for world balances and the safeguarding of freedom of trade and navigation, will be qualifying elements of the Italian G7 Presidency”.

On the sidelines of the proceedings, the Minister will also have some bilateral talks.
