European Union, EU, leaders are meeting in Brussels for a two-day summit starting from Wednesday to discuss the European Union's economic future, the Ukraine war and major tensions between Israel and Iran.

European Council President, Charles Michel, in a statement ahead of the summit, said the EU must unite in urging all parties to exercise the utmost restraint, respect international law, and avoid action that may increase tensions.'

Michel said what was supposed to be an in-depth strategic review of the EU's economic competitiveness had been overshadowed by events in the Middle East.

DAILY POST recalls that Iran had directly attacked Israel on Saturday, for the first time in the history of the Islamic Republic.

Iran said the drone and missile attacks were retaliation for the killing of high-ranking Iranian officers in Syria at the beginning of the month.

However, EU leaders plan to discuss whether and, if so, how the EU could contribute to de-escalation in the region.

Other foreign affairs issues to be discussed include the impact of regional instability in the Middle East on Lebanon and the bloc's relations with Turkey.
