Adelina Marini
Today is a #Eurogroup day with two hot issues on the agenda. The first is #Greece's exit from the bailout programme. The other will take place in an expanded EU-format as it deals with the completion of the banking union and the reform of the #ESM. Although not on the agenda officially, another hot issue is the new government in Italy. Yesterday, President Sergio Mattarella gave Giuseppe Conte a mandate to form a coalition government between the populist M5S and the eurosceptic Lega. Stay tuned for live updates

Adelina Marini #Eurogroup Peter Kazimir: I'm really impatiently awaiting for the new Italian colleague to come here in the room.

I hope the new government will respect the rules and that they are not going to take the eurozone hostage for the sake of pre-election promises

#FAC EU foreign ministers discussed a report by the EU HR for foreign and security policy Federica Mogherini on her visit in #Libya, where the Union re-opened its offices in Tripoli
16 July 2018 15:01
Adelina Marini #FAC #Mogherini on #QMV: We never never in these almost 4 years had a problem with unanimity. I don't exclude in the future this to become a problem but now even on defence we decide with unanimity, even with UK still in. What I can indicate as a problem is the problem of inconsistency. On other issues, yes, indeed
