Germany – Visit to Berlin by Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna (May 24, 2022)

Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna made her first international trip today; she traveled to Berlin where she will meet with her German counterpart, Annalena Baerbock.

She will express our ongoing commitment to French-German cooperation in support of Europe and the tackling of major international challenges, especially now when France holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union and Germany the G7 presidency.

Ahead of the European Council meeting of May 30 and 31, Ms. Colonna will address the various aspects of the European response to the war in Ukraine – political, military, energy-related, humanitarian – as well as food security issues, in a strong spirit of solidarity and European unity toward Ukraine.



Armenia / Azerbaijan / Trilateral meeting between the EU (Brussels - May 22, 2022)

France applauds the results of the meeting held in Brussels on May 22 between President Aliyev of Azerbaijan and Prime Minister Pashinyan of Armenia. Held at the initiative of European Council President Charles Michel, this meeting led the two parties to agree to hold a meeting of the Bilateral Border Commission in the very near future.

France reaffirms its support for the dialogue between Armenia and Azerbaijan under the auspices of the EU and will contribute to this dialogue in a national capacity, as President of the Council of the European Union and as Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group.
