THE Belgian prime minister hosted a fancy dinner for his European colleagues last night ahead of today’s EU Summit – but while Brussels heavyweights Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron got an invite – others were snubbed.
Charles Michel invited 12 leaders from EU member states to the Château de Val-Duchess ahead of today’s EU summit, which Britain will not attend. They will have discussed important topics including migration, trade, the eurozone and the EU’s budget without Britain. Others on the guest list were Ireland’s Leo Varadkar, Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy, Bulgaria’s Boyko Borisov, Italy’s Paolo Gentiloni, Finland’s Juha Sipilä, Luxembourg PM Xavier Bettel, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Portugal’s António Costa and Slovakia’s Robert Fico.
