Addressing the 75th United Nations General Assembly via video conference on Friday, European Council President Charles Michel noted the European Union’s concern about tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean.
“Unilateral actions and violations of international law must absolutely stop. Together with our member-states, we are undertaking intensive diplomatic efforts to defuse tensions and to promote dialogue. In this spirit, I have proposed the organisation of a multilateral conference on the Eastern Mediterranean, in conjunction with the United Nations. Many actors have already responded positively and are ready to discuss the modalities, the agenda and the timetable. Maritime delimitations, security, energy issues, and migration are some of the topics that I believe should be addressed,” Michel said.
