EU heads of state or government meet on 22 June 2017 in Brussels to discuss counterterrorism and how to better combat radicalisation. The European Council is also expected to support a strengthening of EU cooperation on external security and defence.
The working dinner is focused on foreign policy issues in light of recent summits and meetings, including with the US and Turkey leaders. The European Council is reaffirming its commitment to the Paris Agreement on climate. Leaders are also taking stock of the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
At the end, PM May is informing the leaders about the Brexit negotiations.
