Press Release: Remarks by President Donald Tusk ahead of the European Council meetings

This summit is a very clear illustration of the fact that only when we are united can we successfully perform even the most difficult issues and tasks. Like with European defence, for example, or with Brexit. Today we are launching PESCO – an ambitious, inclusive, and very pragmatic project in the field of defence. And tomorrow we will also formally end our first phase of the Brexit negotiations. Both these achievements demanded courage, realism but – above all – our unity. By the way, I have no doubt that the real test of our unity will be the second phase of the Brexit talks.
