Foreign Ministers of Poland and Denmark joined their Cypriot counterpart on Friday on the eastern Mediterranean island to discuss a common agenda for their 18-monthtrio-presidency of the EU starting from July 2011.
"The purpose of the meeting is to prepare for the trio-presidency for the second half of 2011 and 2012," said the host minister Marcos Kyprianou.
Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski promised that the countries will try to lead all Europe fairly, adding that they are now starting to coordinate their position.
Per Stig Moller, the Danish foreign minister whose country has held the presidency a number of times in the past, noted that a draft program should be made for their EU presidency but it could adjust to a changing world.
"Whatever we decide will not necessarily be what we do because the world changes," said Moller.
During their two-day meeting, Moller said, the ministers will discuss the deepening global financial crisis, climate change, terrorism and the rise of extremism in Europe.
