February European Council 2015 - a Wholemilk Summit

The February informal EU summit was supposed to be dedicated, according to the initial plan, on the future of the euro area and, more specifically, the new report of the four presidents. The issue was sidelined by the attacks on the office of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the elections in Greece and the deterioration of the situation in eastern Ukraine. With all this on the agenda it will be hard to fit in desire for dietary summits of Donald Tusk, the new president of the European Council. Compared to the February informal, the December European Council was very lenten and short.

There is no doubt that the EU is again in a Greek mode.

12 February 2015 23:31 Boyko Borissov: If Minsk 2 Fails Next Thing Is War

The second Minsk peace agreement is so fragile, so hard to reach and will enter into force not today but on Sunday.

#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
