THE WEEK AHEAD

LUXEMBOURG : What After the War?

February 19, 1991

European Community foreign ministers meet in this grand duchy today to consider what should be done in the Mideast once peace returns to the Gulf.

On the agenda will be the region's security, political stability and economic development, and the 12 ministers will probably focus particularly on the last.

Specifically, they will consider creating a multinational body--including their own countries, the United States and the oil-rich Persian Gulf nations--to channel aid not only to the Mideast's poor cousins, but also to the Palestinians. The body would be patterned on the so-called G-24, the group of 24 nations that coordinates Western aid to Eastern Europe's emerging democracies.
