The Minister for Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, José Manuel Albares, will meet tomorrow in Valencia with his counterparts from Romania, Bogdan Aurescu, and Poland, Zbigniew Rau, in a trilateral meeting of unprecedented format that will allow the three countries to strengthen exchanges and political cooperation.
The meeting has been structured in two parts, the first of which will address issues related to the European Union, mainly focusing on the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the EU, which begins on 1 July. The second will focus on security issues within the NATO framework, and on Russian aggression against Ukraine.
At the end of the meeting, the three ministers will sign the joint declaration of the 'Valencia Trio', in which they confirm their desire to consolidate this format as a tool for bringing EU partners and NATO Allies closer together. This declaration refers to the political consultations of the three foreign ministers, to the expectations and support for the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the EU, to the European agenda and to security and defence.
