EU foreign ministers to visit Gaza later this month

The foreign ministers of Spain, Italy and France will visit the Gaza Strip later this month to monitor Israel's liberalization of the territory's blockade, Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said Monday at a joint news conference with Syrian President Bashar Assad, AFP reported.
The announcement came after Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman invited Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini to lead an EU delegation to Gaza last month.
According to Zapatero, Frattini will travel to Gaza at an as yet unspecified date with his French and Spanish counterparts, Bernard Kouchner and Miguel Angel Moratinos.
