Mogherini to attend Arab summit in Dhahran

BRUSSELS, EU High Representative Federica Mogherini will travel to Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday where she has been invited to address the opening of the 29th Arab Summit.

It is the second time Mogherini is invited to attend the summit, after last year’s gathering in Jordan, said a press release issued by her office Friday.

The summit will be the opportunity for the EU High Representative to discuss with leaders of the Arab States and members of the international community the latest developments in the region and the challenges to its stability, it noted.

The European Union and the Arab League have a strong relationship based on growing political dialogue and cooperation. The invitation to Mogherini illustrates the willingness of the two organisations to further strengthen their bonds, it added.
