    Greece's foreign minister George Papandreou will make a tour of seven Middle Eastern countries in early February in his capacity as chairman of the EU Council of Ministers, the foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

    Foreign ministry sources said that Papandreou would embark on his Middle East tour with a dual goal: to encourage moderate Arab regimes to mediate with the US to avert conflict in Iraq, and also for the European Union to acquire an accurate and complete picture of the stance that each country will take in the event war operations are launched.
