Migration, Syria and defence high on EU summit agenda

EU leaders are gathering for a one-day summit in Brussels with the agenda dominated by some of Europe's most severe challenges,  - relations with Turkey, the Syrian civil war, the migration crisis, defence cooperation and Russia.

Later tonight, British Prime Minister Theresa May will be excluded from a separate meeting of the leaders of the remaining 27 member states.

They are expected to formally confirm who the chief Brexit negotiators on the EU side will be, and to urge the UK to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty as soon as possible.

  • Ms May has said she "welcomes" the fact that EU leaders will meet separately after the summit.

Arriving in Brussels Ms May said: "As we are going to invoke Article 50, trigger the negotiations by the end of March, it's right that the other leaders prepare for these negotiations as we have been preparing.
