Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry will head to Brussels to attend a meeting of Arab and European ministers on Monday. 

In a statement, foreign ministry spokesman Ahmed Hafez said the meeting would include a discussion and exchange of views between the foreign ministers of participating states on a number of issues of interest to both the Arab and European sides.

An Arab-European summit, which will be attended by leaders and presidents of Arab and European states and governments, will be hosted by Egypt on 24 and 25 February.

Hafez noted that the upcoming summit is the first of its kind and comes in light of the keenness of the Arab and European parties to advance aspects of cooperation and make a quantum leap in Arab-European relations.
