At December 14-15 Summit the EU leaders will assess a number of the most pressing issues, including defence, migration, foreign affairs, social issues, education and culture.
“Our unity in recent months has been outstanding, and I would like to thank every one of you for this. We have demonstrated that we stand firmly together, supporting one another when needed. Also this week we can demonstrate that despite differences, maintaining unity is possible. The best example of this will be the launch of new cooperation in European defence, i.e. Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO)” – president of the EU Council Donald Tusk said ahead of the event.
