MEPs to debate escalating tensions in Iran, Iraq and Libya

The global consequences of the confrontation between the US and Iran will be addressed on Tuesday afternoon with EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell.

Relations between the US and Iran were put under further strain when the US killed top Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in a drone strike in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Friday 3 January.

On Tuesday evening, Parliament will discuss the recent developments in Libya and the efforts to prevent an international conflict with Mr Borrell.
