At-a-glance: #EUCO read-out

van rompuy

Key outcomes from the #EUCO informal yesterday are:

  • EUCO mandated HVR to consult with EP on new EC president
  • Guidelines on future priorities and strategic agenda to be discussed further at June meeting, based on a forthcoming HVR proposals paper. These include, among six areas:
    • “a strong response to the climate change challenge, a determined push towards an energy union and a push for lessening energy dependency.”
    • “continue to strengthen the Union’s external action” 
  • Ukraine elections outcome welcomed
  • Solidarity with Balkan states after severe floods
  • Barosso internal market warning (cf. Bulgaria & South Stream)
