EU leaders reject Merkel and Macron’s offer to host a summit with the participation of Vladimir Putin

“It was a very detailed and difficult discussion. We have once again decided under what conditions we are ready to work and cooperate more closely with Russia. <…> Today no agreement was reached on an immediate meeting of the leaders”, Merkel said on June 24, after the first day of the two-day summit of EU leaders.

About 12 EU countries opposed the summit with Putin, criticizing either the very idea of such a meeting or the fact that it was put forward at the last moment before the summit of EU leaders. Among those who opposed were the leaders of Romania, Estonia, Latvia and the Netherlands (read more).

Russia-EU summits have been held regularly since 1995. They ended after the annexation of Crimea to Russia in 2014.
