Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, March 13, 2020 – European Council President Charles Michel, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković decided on Thursday to cancel or postpone less important and less urgent meetings at the Council of the EU and to hold conference calls in some cases. Michel, von der Leyen and Plenković, as the prime minister of the country chairing the Council of the EU, agreed that the EU’s ability to make decisions must be retained but that institutions’ work must be adjusted to the current situation to minimise the risk of the spreading of the coronavirus.

At the more important meetings that will be held measures will be taken to provide for the safety of participants.

Five meetings scheduled to take place until the end of the month are considered important and will be held.
