EU leaders wound up two days of high-level talks in Brussels on Friday (20 October), after having discussed the digital single market, migration, defence, but also Catalonia and Turkey. On Brexit, the leaders welcomed ‘some progress’ in the talks, but said it was not enough to move to phase two, postponing that assessment for December.

The leaders adopted a two-year agenda of high-level meetings aimed at setting the framework for dealing with a eurozone reform, migration crisis, internal security, trade and the future financing of the EU.
