#EUCO In Malta today begins an informal EU summit, the main topic of which will be the migration crisis. During the meeting the leaders of the member states will also discuss the next steps (after Bratislava) of the European integration. As the leaders started arriving, however, the main question was about the behaviour of the new US presidential administration

Adelina Marini #EUCO Jean-Claude Juncker: No, I don't feel threatened (by the new administration) but I do think there is room for explanations, because sometimes I have the impression that the new administration doesn't know the EU in detail, but in Europe details matter
3 February 2017 10:05
Adelina Marini #EUCO Juri Ratas (#Estonia): Today we have 2 main topics - migration and the European future. We need united, strong and working EU and I'm sure that we have this union today
3 February 2017 10:10
Adelina Marini #EUCO Xavier Bettel (#Luxembourg): I'm also not supporting what happened in the US the last days and weeks, but I'm waiting for the report of some colleagues who spoke and met also President Trump in the last days. (on migration) And I hope that we won't speak again about the flexible solidarity but solidarity which is reciprocity. This is very important for me

Adelina Marini #EUCO Bettel: What happened the last days (in the US) are really not the values I'm fighting in politics for
3 February 2017 10:19
Adelina Marini #EUCO Federica Mogherini: I think that today we will have a big responsibility as Europeans. First of all, to show unity and strength in a moment when the world and the Europeans need a strong EU, sticking to our values, being true to ourselves and becoming a strong point of reference for our partners around the world on multilateralism, on peace and security, on free and fair trade, on peace in our region and on a cooperative approach in the world
3 February 2017 10:27
Adelina Marini #EUCO #Mogherini: On migration I think that we can today show the difference. The European approach is an approach of partnership
3 February 2017 10:31
Adelina Marini #EUCO Mogherini: We are and will remain friends with the Americans, with the American people, with the American administration on the basis of our strong values, principles, interests. We have clear priorities. And I'm sure we will have very pragmatic conversations on where we can work together to achieve common results or where we might differ. Differing in positions is something normal among friends. For sure, the European differ when it comes to a certain approach, for instance on migration. We do not believe in walls and bans. This is the European way. The American way might become different today. This is not a European problem. This might be an American problem but we're seeking for friendship and cooperation as always with our American friends

Adelina Marini #EUCO Klaus Iohannis (#Romania): I have to admit even if it is very hard for me that the situation in Romania is very complicated, but we have hundreds of thousands of my Romanians out in the streets and I trust them. I trust my people. I believe in Romania. In the end I'm convinced we will, we have to find a good solution. The rule of law has to prevail, the European values have to prevail and this is what I believe will happen
3 February 2017 10:51
Adelina Marini #EUCO Andrej Plenkovic (#Croatia): In this moment we have to find a new cohesive narrative to show that Europe is united and can deal with the new global context

Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: In every country there are problems with the rule of law. No country is above the law. But it is never an excuse that someone else is doing the same

The #Eurogroup finance ministers are gathering today for their regular meeting with a main issue on the agenda the 2nd review of the 3rd bailout programme for #Greece. There is another issue hanging in the air, which is not on the agenda - will the Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem remain on the position as chair of the Eurogroup since his party sustained huge losses at the parliamentary elections in the Netherlands last week. For now, a Tusk-effect is not visible but all minsters praise Dijsslbloem as a brilliant chief of the Eurogroup. Everyone, however, refuse to forecast whether he will stay even after his mandate runs out in January. EU economic affairs commissioner Pierre Moscovici hinted something in that direction saying that Mr Dijsselbloem is very competent and is very well aware of the Greek dossier. This is a hint that the next is yet to get acquainted with this dossier and there might not be sufficient time for that

#EUCO The leaders of the member states are gathering today in Brussels for their spring EU summit. The issues on the agenda vary from economic, including welcoming the Commission's intentions to address the differentiated quality of foodstuff in the internal market, to external affairs and migration. Another important issue on the agenda is the situation in the Western Balkans. The leaders are expected to reaffirm the European perspective of the six. After the negotiations on establishing a European Public Prosecutor's Office have failed, the issue has landed on the leaders' agenda. In the draft conclusions they support going for an enhanced cooperation procedure which allows those member states who want to to continue with the establishment of EPPO. Last but not least on the agenda is the re-election of Donald Tusk ad European Council president. He enjoys the support of most member states but Poland has fiercely opposed his re-election

Adelina Marini #EUCO #Juncker: Now is the time for the Europeans to show their true colours. I'd only add that those who sit on their laurels don't go as far as those who run
