Spain – Visit by Mr. Harlem Désir (Madrid, September 19, 2014)

Mr. Harlem Désir, Minister of State for European Affairs, will tomorrow travel to Madrid to meet with his counterpart, Mr. Iñigo Mendez de Vigo, as well as Mr. Jorge Moragas, Diplomatic Adviser to the President of the Government of Spain.

These meetings will provide an opportunity to review our bilateral cooperation and key European and international issues.

Mr. Harlem Désir will also meet with our business community in Spain and address the “Nueva Economía Forum."

During this visit, Mr. Désir will also pay tribute to Lieutenant-Colonel Henri Morel, a military attaché in Spain from 1936 to 1939 who died for France in 1944, by unveiling a commemorative plaque at the embassy. He will also meet with Mr. Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, former Secretary General of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party.


Ebola – United Nations – Security Council meeting (New York, September 18, 2014)

France will today participate in the UN Security Council meeting devoted to the fight against the Ebola epidemic, a week before the summit due to be hosted by the UN Secretary-General at the level of Heads of State and Government.

This global threat, which has already killed almost 2,600 people and is destabilizing the economy of the countries affected, calls, more than ever, for the mobilization of the entire international community and for increased coordination of efforts.

France will play its full role in this.
