EU foreign ministers were expected to get together in Brussels talk about issues including developments in Venezuela and the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as EU policy on Iran, according to the Polish foreign ministry.
Czaputowicz last week said that Poland would demonstrate an understanding for the American position on Iran within the EU.
He was speaking at a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Washington a few days after President Donald Trump pulled America out of a nuclear deal with Iran.
Czaputowicz told the Reuters news agency in an interview last week that the EU should pay more heed to Washington’s security concerns following America’s withdrawal from the deal.
He was quoted by Reuters as saying that, during discussions within the EU, Poland “will emphasise the need to consider the motives of the United States and a greater empathy towards them.”
Another item on the agenda of Monday’s EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting in Brussels was the future of relations between the EU and countries in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, according to the Polish foreign ministry.
