European Union leaders are heading to Malta for a crucial summit. Topping the agenda: the migration crisis, the Brexit process and the "threat" the new American administration poses to the bloc.
The majority of EU nations have committed to a joint defense cooperation, focusing on military operations and investments. Europe is looking to cement unity, especially since Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.
This EU summit proves: Trouble is brewing in every corner of Europe. But the bloc does not need grand visions; it needs practical solutions to the problems it faces, says DW’s Christoph Hasselbach.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she firmly believes a Brexit deal can be reached despite a lack of details from Britain. Merkel also said EU leaders agreed to cut financial aid to Turkey over rights violations.
Toxic fumes seeping from kitchen drains have forced the European Union to move a leaders' summit in Brussels at the last minute. It's not the first time stinky vapors have afflicted the new EU headquarters.
