European Council as culmination of the Czech Presidency

On 18 and 19 June the European Council presided by Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer will be held.

On the agenda of the meeting will be extremely important issues, such as the negotiation and adoption of the wording of the guarantees for Ireland, financial and economic issues, including European financial supervision and employment, negotiations on the future President of the European Commission, development in preparations of the Copenhagen conference on the fight against climate change and EU international policy relations, particularly with respect to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In light of the extremely complex programme of the European Council, the Prime Minister, the Foreign Minister and the Minister for European Affairs will go on a tour of European countries, the “tour des capitales”, where they will discuss the preparations of the European Council with their counterparts. On Monday 15 June the Czech Republic will also preside over the ministerial meeting of the General Affairs and External Relations Council in Luxembourg, which will carry out preliminary discussions of the topics of the European Council.
