Conte in talks with Macron ahead of EU summit

Italy's premier was due late on Thursday to hold talks in Brussels with France's president Emmanuel Macron, the prime minister's office said in a statement.


Conte and Macron's talks on the best way to help nations most affected by the COVID-19 crisis come ahead of a key European Union leaders summit on Friday and Saturday. Italy hopes the summit will agree a proposed 750 billion euro fund to help the bloc's economies recover from the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At their first face-to-face summit since the pandemic, EU leaders will also try to carve up a more than 1-trillion-euro budget for the next seven years.
