"I am very pleased to know that the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) Summit is happening after having pushed for a resumption of that for quite some months now," she told a press conference after holding talks with Canadian foreign minister in Brussels this evening.
"To see our friends in the GCC countries coming together again is for us a very positive sign and we would encourage every time the search for cooperative approaches and dialogue," she added.
