Council of Europe: “informal” summit in Salzburg on security, migration and Brexit. No great expectations in the run-up

(Brussels) An informal summit, which is not expected to produce any special progress, but rather an opportunity to take stock, once again, of the member states’ positions on the hottest issues of the time, mainly migration, asylum, security and Brexit. This is what has been leaking in Brussels in the run-up to the informal summit that will bring together the heads of state and government of the EU in Salzburg, on September 19th and 20th, under Austria’s presidency on duty. “The summit, which is part of the leaders’ agenda, will focus on internal security”, a notice explains. The heads of state or government “will take stock of the progress made so far in the upgrading police and legal cooperation and the strengthening of border security and cyber resilience”. In addition, the leaders will also talk migration “at an informal business lunch”. They will discuss “the latest developments in the area and will also take stock of the progress made in reducing the number of irregular migrants coming to the EU and cooperation with the third countries”. The summit will end with a EU-27 meeting about Brexit: “a chance to discuss the current state of negotiations and the next steps”. The result of the informal summit’s discussions will be reflected in the meetings and in the conclusions of the Council of Europe’s forthcoming meetings, on October 18th.
