On his arrival at the December 2014 EU Summit, Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb said that “the UK, like Finland, is a rich country, the UK, unlike Finland, has a rebate regardless of its economic power.” “I think it is very important we do not start treating the EU as some kind of a simplified accounting exercise,” Stubb added.

EU leaders met in Brussels on Thursday and Friday to reach an agreement on the new climate and energy policy framework for 2030. The last EU Summit chaired by Herman Van Rompuy also looked at the state of the European economy and address some foreign policy issues. Ebola was on the official agenda too.
