EU Summit-28th June 2018

The latest EU Summit begins on the 28th June 2018, held by the European Council and its President, Donald Tusk. All 28 member states will be represented, and Theresa May will seek one-to-one conversations with several of these, given that this is the last summit before the meeting of EU leaders that is scheduled to sign off the final deal.

Amongst Brexit discussions, migration is high on the agenda. The BBC published an article, outlining each country’s priorities and issues of importance that they would like to discuss.

The EU Commission produced some preparatory notes for the EU Summit

In terms of the UK’s position,  Laura Kuenssberg, BBC editor, suggested that ‘this summit therefore is not about technical negotiations, but about promises and persuasion, for the prime minister to convey that she is in charge of her agenda’.

A press release will be published on the European Commission website following completion of the EU Summit; in the meantime, BBC News will be regularly updating readers on proceedings.
