Hello,
Please check my translation...

I would greatly appreciate meeting with you in order to discuss the case but due to professional commitments I will not be able to travel long distance. I will be able to arrange video conferencing on July 11, and would like to meet with you then. Please contact me in order to confirm a time that you might be able to meet me on that day.

Agradecería mucha reunión con usted a objetó de discutir el caso pero a causa de compromiso de profesional no puedo viajar larga distancia. Puedo organizar videoconferencia en 11 de julio y me gustaría conocerla entonces. Contáctenme por favor para confirmar una hora que podría reunirme.

Gracias
Giti

By example, if you say "me gustaria discutir este tema contigo", it equivalent to saying "me gustaria intercambiar opiniones contigo sobe este tema" and has no negative connotations.
If I say "no me interesa discutir contigo", it means "I don't want to argue with you".
Or if I say "(Ellos) Tuvieron una fuerte discusion" it more like saying that they had a fight.

"Discutir" not always has negative connotations

"Discutir" not always has negative connotations and is perfectly applicable in this context. Forums all along the web are called "foros de discusión" with no negative meaning

Yura thank you for clearing the point of discutir.
I used to think debatir is the word for arguing. So in general when I want to apply the word 'discuss' I should use hablar? For example - discuss the situation or discuss something over coffee etc...

"Discutir" usually has a negative connotation, as in "argue." "Hablar del caso" would be fine. What is not quite clear (neither in English nor Spanish) is whether you want to meet in person or arrange a video conference. No need for "de" before "profesional," but add "una" before "videoconferencia." "...a que hora podemos reunirnos" (present or near future) or "podremos" (future) would probably work better. If you really want to use potential simple then use "podríamos."

Me agradaría mucho reunirme con usted con el fin de discutir el caso pero a causa de compromisos profesionales no puedo viajar a larga distancia. Puedo organizar una videoconferencia el 11 de julio y me gustaría conocerla entonces. Contáctenme por favor para quedar a una hora en concreto.

Is this a woman you are going to meet? then la is correct if not it has to be le.

"Apreciaría enormemente el reunirme con usted para discutir el caso, pero debido a otros compromisos profesionales no me va a ser posible viajar tan lejos. Podríamos organizar una video conferencia para el 11 de julio, donde me gustaría conocerla. Por favor póngase en contacto conmigo para arreglar la hora más conveniente."

It's not literal, but it means what you want to say I guess.
