Tusk's spokesman: No conclusions on first day of Euro Summit because of "one member"
No conclusions were agreed on the first day of the Euro Summit because of "one member."
"As one Member reserved their position on the entire conclusions, no conclusions have been agreed at this stage. For this reason, the press conference by the EU institutional representatives has been cancelled and will instead take place tomorrow [June 29] after the end of the Euro Summit," President of the European Council Donald Tusk's spokesperson said in a statement on June 28.
However, the statement did not mention which member state had not agreed the final conclusion in the wake of the first day of the Euro Summit of the heads of state and government of the EU member states.
According to the spokesperson, the European Council on June 28 had an exchange of views with European Parliament President Tajani and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg as well as discussions on security and defense, jobs, growth and competitiveness, innovation and digital and other issues such as enlargement, MH17 and the multiannual financial framework (MFF).
As UNIAN reported earlier, Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte previously announced plans to block the general conclusions of the Council of the European Union because of the position of his country over migration issues.
