  • European leaders lent their support to Greece and Cyprus in the face of Turkish provocations.
  • The communique released on Thursday also backed Greece’s positions on the Turkey-Libya memorandum on maritime zones, noting that this infringes on the sovereign rights of third countries and cannot produce legal consequences.
  • The greater part of the Council’s conclusions concern fighting climate change and the commitment to a climate-neutral EU by 2050 but “exempt” Poland at this stage, noting that “One Member State…cannot commit to implement this objective as far as it is concerned, and the European Council will come back to this in June 2020.”
