20 October 2010 – The importance of the cooperation between the United Nations and the European Union on a range of issues, including on the Middle East, topped Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s talks today with a senior EU official in France.

Before departing Strasbourg for New York, Mr. Ban met this morning with Catherine Ashton, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
