New broom ends EU summit a day early

2014-12-19 07:53

In a striking symbol of changed leadership, European Union leaders wrapped up their last summit of the year a day early after agreeing to launch an investment fund and maintain sanctions on Russia over Ukraine.

The two-and-a-half page broad statement compared with up to 40 pages of detailed policy conclusions at previous summits, when leaders would negotiate for hours over a handful of phrases. The last EU summit conclusions in October ran to 15 pages.
