Eurogroup outcome - EDIS

The Eurogroup failed to reach an agreement on a common European Deposit Insurance Fund (EDIS). The Commission proposed the EDIS back in 2015, however, so far there has been no progress on agreeing on the tool at the Member State level. The Greens/EFA Group will push this issue forward in the European Parliament.

EUCO: Agreement reached on EU partial oil embargo

The agreement to ban 90 percent of Russian oil from entering the European Union and to finally put the sixth sanctions package into force is welcome. To continue maximum pressure on Russia, the EU’s unity is key. European unity cannot come at the expense of the rule of law though. The EU must not give away its values for unity.
