Turkish Foreign Ministry stated on Sunday that Davutoglu would participate in the "Gymnich" meeting on September 3 and share with the EU partners Turkey's approach and initiatives vis-à-vis the recent developments.

Davutoglu will also hold bilateral meetings with his counterparts from the EU countries in the margins of the meeting.

"In view of our multi-dimensional and active foreign policy, further strengthening dialogue and consultations between the EU and Turkey, as a future member state conducting accession negotiations, can also reinforce the EU's foreign and security policy. We are confident that enhancing cooperation between Turkey and EU in this field will contribute to international peace and stability," said the Ministry.

During the meeting on September 3, foreign ministers of EU member and candidate countries are expected to discuss the initiatives of the EU towards its southern and eastern neighbours.

The "Gymnich" meetings, which derive its name from the Gymnich Castle in Germany, take place once under the six month tenure of each EU Presidency.
