As EU leaders gather in Brussels for an EU summit, Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras told reporters that tackling illegal immigration is of ‘paramount importance’, specially in the South Mediterranean region. Samaras also added that European leaders will discuss ‘digital union’ and ‘banking union’ throughout the meeting.

Other issues on the agenda include immigration policies following the Lampedusa tragedy, banking union and the social dimension for the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU).
