Flight cancellations force delay of EU meetings

world Updated: Apr 18, 2010 17:39 IST

EU ministerial meetings due to be held on Monday have been postponed because of flight cancellations caused by the spread of volcanic ash from Iceland, the Spanish EU presidency said.

These included meetings of EU agriculture and fisheries ministers due to be held in Luxembourg and a conference between the EU and Croatia on the latter's EU accession bid due to have been held in Brussels, the presidency said on Sunday.

A meeting of EU telecommunications ministers in Granada on Monday will go ahead, the presidency said in a statement.
