Informal Meeting of EU Foreign Affairs Ministers may discuss ACTA on September 
10th

The Dutch Parliament moves the ACTA dossier from the Economic Affairs committee 
to the Foreign Affairs committee. Sources within Parliament say the final ACTA 
draft (the EU position) will be determined in a EU Foreign Affairs Council. EU 
Foreign Affairs Ministers will have an informal meeting on September 10th and 
11th. The Informal Meeting of Foreign Affairs ministers aims at allowing 
ministers to share thoughts about current problems concerning the European 
Union foreign policy freely and intensely. No agenda has been published yet. 
ACTA will not officially be on the agenda. Two days earlier, to prepare the 
Dutch position, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Dutch Parliament will 
discuss trade policy (Wednesday September 8th). These discussions may include 
the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement ACTA. Since the Dutch minister of 
Foreign Affairs is busy the minister of Economic Affairs will replace him. There 
will be no live stream available for the Dutch Committee meeting.
