Ministers will discuss Bosnia and Herzegovina, which will be called upon to implement the constitutional changes necessary to continue its EU integration.

On Tuesday, they will discuss giving Montenegro a date for the start of membership negotiations.

If all 27 Ministers agree that Montenegro had fulfilled the requirements of the European Union related to combating corruption and organized crime, an EU summit of heads of state and governments will at the end of the week approve the start of accession talks.

As previously announced, the first day of the ministerial meeting will consider the situation in Syria and Egypt. It is expected that they will decide on a new tightening of sanctions against Syria, and will call on the military in Egypt to stop obstructing the process of election of civilian authorities.
