  • [01] LILLIKAS - EU - LEBANON

    Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Lillikas pointed out the substantive role the EU can play in the appeasement of the situation in the Middle East, noting that the EU should not be a passive observer but should take on an active political role.

    Speaking at the extraordinary EU General Affairs Council in Brussels, which convened to discuss the situation in Lebanon and the EU role in defusing the crisis, Lillikas deplored both the Hezbollah attacks and the disproportional Israeli counter-attacks, and pointed out the consequences these have on the people of Lebanon and Israel, as well as the populations of neighbouring countries.

    Lillikas noted the mediatory role the countries of the region, such as Egypt, could play in international efforts to achieve a ceasefire.

    He also pointed out the importance of EU involvement in a dialogue with the directly or indirectly involved countries of the region to achieve this goal.

    Regarding the possibility of sending an international force to the region, Lillikas said the mandate of such a force, which will be discussed by the UN Security Council, should include the implementation of relevant provisions of resolution 1559.
