Brussels (EFE) sending its Leopard tanks to kyiv.
During the meeting, they will also approve the fourth round of sanctions against Iran for repressing demonstrators who protest against the Government, although they will avoid including the Revolutionary Guard on the list of terrorist organizations, for legal and political reasons, according to various diplomatic sources and European.
The heads of European diplomacy will try to agree on a new tranche of the European Peace Support Fund with which the Twenty-seven are financing a part of the shipment of arms to kyiv, worth, up to now, 3,500 million euros.
They also hope to be able to approve a disbursement of 45 million euros from the same fund to finance the military training mission that the EU has created to train some 15,000 Ukrainian soldiers on European soil.
The ministers will once again address the issue of the need to create a court capable of judging the crimes that Russia is committing in Ukraine, the need for which no one doubts but in which there is no consensus regarding the jurisdiction under which it should be governed.
While the Eastern countries advocate creating an ad hoc international court, others, led by Germany, believe that it should have dual jurisdiction, Ukrainian and international, since neither kyiv nor Moscow have signed the Rome Statute of the Criminal Court International, so it lacks jurisdiction to judge crimes committed in both countries.
“Whatever it is, the solution does not have to harm the International Criminal Court,” said a European source.
The foreign ministers will also discuss with their Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba – who will be connected by videoconference – the 10-point peace plan proposed by President Volodimir Zelenski.
On the other hand, the Twenty-seven plan to sanction around thirty Iranian people in response to the repression by the authorities of the Persian country against demonstrators who have been protesting against the Government for four months now.
However, various sources assured that the ministers will avoid designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist group, as the European Parliament has requested this week; also the president of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, and already in November the German Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock.
Designating Iran’s elite military corps as a terrorist group could have political consequences, a senior community official said, recalling that Tehran has threatened “devastating consequences” over efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear pact.
There is “a need to maintain open channels with Iran and the Islamic Republic. The last thing and the worst idea is to cut off any kind of communication,” the source said.
There are also legal reasons for not taking the step, since legally the EU cannot designate an organization as a terrorist group if one of the Member States has not done so before, something that has not happened in this case.
The EC recalls, even so, that there are already EU sanctions against the Revolutionary Guard or against some of its members.
The high representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, will also propose to the ministers a reflection on a reform of the community position towards Venezuela, to whose authorities it currently applies sanctions due to the political and rights crisis in the country.
The reason is the “change” in recent months in the region, community sources pointed out, with countries like Brazil and Colombia resuming diplomatic relations with Caracas, the reorganization of the opposition or the prospect of negotiations in Mexico between the government and the opponents. .
The sources noted that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro is now “much less isolated than before.”
During a working lunch, the ministers will also discuss with the Palestinian Prime Minister, Mohammad Shtayyeh, the possibility of strengthening relations with the EU.
