Diplomatic Representation in Brussels (B)

Political Dialogue / Sanctions

The EEA Agreement foresees that the EEA EFTA States Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway regularly meet with EU representatives to discuss foreign policy matters. These political dialogues take place twice a year at ministerial level on the margins of the EEA Council. In addition, the Mission regularly participates in dialogues at expert level. These focus on certain regions (e.g. Africa, Western Balkans, Eastern Europe/Central Asia) as well as on cooperation in certain international organizations (e.g. Council of Europe, OSCE). The EEA EFTA States are not part of the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), but the political dialogues show that the foreign policy activities of the EEA EFTA States harmonise very well with those of the EU. The EEA EFTA States are frequently invited to associate themselves with EU declarations on current foreign policy issues – which Liechtenstein regularly does. Liechtensteins  close alignment policy illustrates how closely it is aligned the EU’s fundamental values. Liechtenstein also generally supports the EU’s sanctions policy and implements the EU’s sanctions measures domestically.
