MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The summit will be held at the Chateau of Val Duchesse, famous for a number of important formal meetings, including the first European Commission meeting in 1958 and the Belgo-British Conferences in the 2000s.
The purpose of the summit is to address and improve bilateral cooperation in the fight against terrorism and to develop more effective collaboration on migrant camps on the French-Belgian border.
On November 13, a series of terrorist attacks in Paris claimed the lives of some 130 people. The Islamic State (ISIL, Daesh) terrorist group, which is outlawed in Russia and many other countries, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
Some of the terrorists allegedly responsible for the attacks arrived in France from Belgium, according to the police. One of the key perpetrators, Salah Abdeslam, who is still at large, lived in a Brussels district with large migrant population.
The forces of both France and Belgium have been on high alert and in coordination following the attacks.
