October 18 to 19, 2012: European Council Meeting

The European Council meets at least twice every six months in the Justus Lipsius building in Brussels. It comprises the heads of state or government of the EU Member States and the President of the European Commission. It is chaired by its President, Herman Van Rompuy. The High Representative for Foreign Affairs also takes part in its meetings.

No doubt, there will be much discussion about Spain, Greece and a performance by Nigel Farage.
