European Council sessions

The European Council is a strategic body responsible for fundamental decisions on policy and for addressing serious political difficulties. Its sessions provide stimuli for the further development of the integration process. It is used as a forum for high-level policy debate in crisis situations, and where necessary tries to help settle disputes and disagreements between Member States. The European Council meets at least four times a year. It meets at least twice a year in Brussels, and other sessions are held in the country holding the EU Council Presidency.

Informal ministerial meetings in the Czech Republic

During the Czech Republic’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union, fourteen informal meetings of ministers will be held in various regional towns and cities throughout the country. Besides Prague, which is set to host nine informal meetings, summits will also take place in Brno, Luhačovice, Hluboká nad Vltavou, Mariánské Lázně and Litoměřice.

EU meetings with third-country representatives

The Czech EU Presidency is responsible for formulating the European Union’s positions in international forums and will also organise EU meetings with third-country representatives in the Czech Republic and abroad. These meetings will strengthen relations with third countries outside the territory of the European Union. Negotiations will take the form of Troikas and summits. The summits will be attended by individual heads of state and government from all EU Member States.
