Davutoglu set to attend EU Foreign Ministers' meeting in Finland today
After completing his talks in Ireland, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is scheduled to travel to Finland today to participate in a three-day unofficial summit of European Union foreign ministers in Finland's arctic Lapland region under the auspices of Finnish Foreign Minister Alexander Stubb. In addition to Davutoglu, his counterparts from Estonia, France, Italy, Sweden and Spain, as well as EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, are expected to attend. The meeting is set to discuss the EU's international role amid increasing multipolarity at the global level, opportunities in the EU's neighborhood, and the EU's changing dynamics after approval of the Treaty of Lisbon. On the sidelines of the meeting, Davutoglu will also hold bilateral talks with his counterparts. Turkey is the only EU candidate country whose foreign minister was invited to the gathering.
