EU leaders hold crucial spending talks
2013-02-07 10:36:44 | (0 Comments)
European Union leaders are due to begin a two-day summit in Brussels to try to strike a deal on the next seven years of EU spending.
High EU expenditure at a time of cutbacks and austerity across the continent is the main issue dividing the 27-member states.
They failed to reach a compromise at a similar summit last November.
The European Commission, which is the EU's executive body, had originally wanted a budget ceiling of 1 trillion euros for 2014-2020, a 5 percent increase.
In November that was trimmed back to €973 billion and later revised down to €943 billion.
