TV Nova | The most important EU summit of this year starts in Brussels

Long-term financial aid to Ukraine and the start of accession talks on its membership in the Union will be the main topics of the EU summit in Brussels. The situation in the Middle East is also to be addressed. Our deputy director and head of the Brussels office Žiga Faktor commented on the issue for the TN Nova.

"This is absolutely the most important summit of this year, one could say in the last few years. Two key items will be discussed - the issue of opening accession talks with Ukraine and Moldova and the EU's multiannual financial framework, which is also linked to financial assistance to Ukraine. However, the agenda for the whole summit is very long, and it can be expected that it will fill at least the two scheduled days during which the summit should take place - today and tomorrow. It is possible that it will extend into the weekend, as we have seen a few times in the past."
