#FAC Today is the first meeting of the EU foreign ministers chaired by the new high representative for foreign and security policy, Federica #Mogherini. Before the meeting she said that the first thing the ministers will discuss will be the new working methods. If we want to be effective in the world, we need to be effective here, in Brussels too. The main issue on the agenda, again, will be Ukraine but also Bosnia on which you can read more on this website later.

#EUCO The leaders of the member states are gathering today in Brussels for the spring European Council. They have quite a lot of issues on their plates. One of the most sensitive topics will be the EU's answer to the #Salisbury attack. Some member states, including European Council President Donald Tusk, want a stronger reaction against Russia whereas others are more cautious. In the context of Syria, the leaders will discuss relations with Turkey. A decision is expected on whether the EU-Turkey summit in Varna is to take place. Another tough topic is what answer the EU should plan to the US tariffs on steel and aluminium. As the tradition goes, the spring European Council is the time to check the European semester. In addition, there will be a summit of the euro area but this time it will not be open for non-euro countries. The leaders will also discuss yesterday's proposal by the Commission to tax the digital economy. The summit is also expected to adopt conclusions on the Western Balkans on the occasion of the May summit with the six countries. On the menu is also the issue of Brexit. After a transitional agreement has been agreed the leaders now have to outline the guidelines for the future relations with the UK
