European Council on foreign policy

The European Union has been trying for a long time to synchronise the foreign policies of its 27 Member States into a common one. After the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the Union is getting closer to the achievement of this goal, because the Treaty has allowed the creation of the European External Affairs Service, which is almost entirely developed. In order to put additional weight on the importance of a common EU foreign policy, the president of the European Council Herman van Rompuy organises a special European Council (the meeting of the leaders of the Member States), dedicated to foreign policy. The main issues on the agenda of the first of its kind foreign policy Council will be: EU's relations with the Asian countries, the situation in Pakistan after the disastrous floods there, the G20 summit in Seoul in November and the transatlantic relations.

#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
