France to Host Mini-EU Summit

French President Francois Hollande said on Monday there would be a summit in Versailles with the leaders of Germany, Italy and Spain on March 6 to prepare reforms for the European Union ahead of the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome.
“It’s not about deciding between the four of us what Europe should be. That’s not our conception, but we are four important countries and it is up to us to say what we want to do with the others, together,” Hollande said at a news conference alongside Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, Reuters reported. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the prime ministers of Spain and Italy, Mariano Rajoy and Paolo Gentiloni, respectively have been invited to the summit.
The meeting, scheduled for March, is intended as preparation for the EU summit on March 25.
March 25 also marks the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Economic Community, the predecessor to the modern European Union. Hollande was in the Spanish city of Malaga on Monday for a one-day meeting with Rajoy.
