EU Council meetings: Remarks by D.Tusk on external relations

''I will start my report from the European Council with Brexit. Last Wednesday evening, leaders listened to Prime Minister May’s views on the negotiations. [...]Leaders also held a short debate on external relations, including on the fight against climate change ahead of COP 24 in Katowice. We adopted conclusions on taking our relations with Africa to a new level — an issue of great importance — and in this context agreed to organize a summit with the League of Arab States on the 24-25 February next year. For many of the issues discussed at the European Council – from migration to security – as well as the need to scale up the Union's presence as a global actor in many fields, the EU's budget is key. At technical level, there have been detailed discussions on the next Multiannual Financial Framework. But, in general terms, we are far from reaching any sort of consensus. That is why I will propose a political discussion at the December European Council. I welcome the intention that the consolidated position of the European Parliament is to be known by then.''
