European Council 8-9 December 2011

In recent months, is has often been expected that a certain summit of the EU or the euro area would be a "decisive" one and leaders would take "decisive" measures to tackle the crisis. On the eve of the last European Council this year, the expectations are also too high, although it is clear that we can hope at most to get clarity about the direction and the goal. The way to get there will surely be long, but even a clear signal of strong political will would be a good Christmas present for Europe. euinside will closely follow the summit and will familiarize you in details with the results.

#EUCO This afternoon, in Brussels, will begin the last EU summit this year. It will be the first that will work on Donald Tusk's Leaders' Agenda (details in the link below). In his agenda two topics are planned for the December European Council - migration and the future of the EMU. Both have already created strong tensions between Tusk and the Commission after the European Council president came up with documents of his own, which are much more reduced than those of the Commission, and reactions in the building across the street were furious. The leaders will mark the launch by 25 member states of PESCO at a special ceremony today. Leaders will be joined by NATO secretary general to discuss EU-NATO cooperation. Leaders are also expected to extend sanctions against Russia after hearing a report by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Progress on the Brexit negotiations will be discussed on Friday. This is one of the toxic issues on the agenda. On Friday will take place also the expanded euro area summit, which is open for non-euro countries as well. Stay tuned for details and live updates throughout the day and tomorrow! euinsi.de/0Dcy
