UNITED NATIONS, September 4. /TASS/. The four mediators in the Middle East settlement [Russia, the United States, the European Union and the United Nations] will have a ministerial-level meeting at the United Nations headquarters at the invitation of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on September 30, U.S. Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said on Friday.
He said invitations to the meeting had been sent to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and foreign ministers of the countries of the region.
The spokesperson said that after the Quartet foreign ministers had come out with a call to expand cooperation with Arab countries in February, the United Nations Secretary General decided to invite to the meeting Secretary General of the Arab League Nabil Elarabi and foreign ministers of Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
Earlier on Friday, Mogherini announced the forthcoming Quartet meeting but did not say when it would be held.
Ministerial debates on conflict settlement in the Middle East and North Africa and rebuffing terrorist threat in the region will be held at the United Nations Security Council under Russia’s presidency on September 30. The discussion is expected focus on the situation in Syria, Iraq, Libya and the Palestinian-Israeli settlement.
