Spain PM Rajoy hosts summit on Brexit
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy hosted a summit on Monday with the leaders of six other southern European nations. The meeting is to focus on the future of the European Union (EU) in light of Britain's decision to leave the bloc, as well as the future negotiations that would allow this to happen, Efe news reported.
Those attended Monday's meeting include the Presidents of France, Francois Hollande; Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades; and the Prime Ministers of Greece, Alexis Tsipras; Italy, Paolo Gentiloni; Portugal, Antonio Costa; and Malta, Joseph Muscat. The gathering was the third of its kind among southern European nations, the last ones taking place in Athens in September 2016 and in Lisbon at the end of January. Brexit was expected to feature on the agenda for the talks in Madrid.
