EU in crisis as European Council chief warns ‘everything on table’ ahead of budget clash

Speaking to reporters, Charles Michel claimed EU leaders have “worked very hard” in the past weeks to work out a solution to the many concerns EU member states have over the future budget of the Brussels bloc. Leaders across the EU will discuss the future of the Union in a Special Summit over the course of the next three days, to decide on the first-ever EU budget since Brexit. 

President Michel said: “This morning we will start our summit about the next European budget.

“The last weeks we have worked very hard with all the leaders and I’m grateful to the leaders for the hard work we have done together.

“There are many interests and there are many concerns and they are all legitimate.

“But I’m convinced that it is possible to make progress in the next hours or in the next days.

“I’m convinced that everything is on the table in order to decide.”
