EU leaders fail to agree on summit with Putin - Merkel

Leaders of the European Union member states failed to reach an agreement on a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel revealed.

Merkel addressed the reporters after a meeting in Brussels, explaining that the proposal for a meeting with Putin, that she and French President Emmanuel Macron put forth, was not accepted after a discussion she described as "not an easy one."

"We defined again under what conditions we are prepared to work and communicate more closely with Russia," Merkel said. "There was no agreement today on an immediate" meeting between the leaders, she concluded.
