An extraordinary council of 21 EU Foreign Ministers, without the Foreign Minister of the EU founding countries, will be held on Monday 27 June in Warsaw, on the initiative of Polish Foreign Minister Mr. Witold Waszczykowski. This meeting, in which Greek Foreign Minister Mr. Nikos Kotzias will participate, comes two days after a meeting of the Foreign Minister of EU founding countries which discussed the result of the British referendum.

The meeting – whose agenda has not yet leaked – will, according to IBNA sources, discuss the consequences of Brexit, the EU’s response and the future of other EU countries, as it is now clear that the EU is heading into unchartered waters and there are formations being created that render it a multi-speed Union.

EU circles, according to IBNA information, disagree with the vindictive attitude the core of the EU is showing against Britain and are seeking a solution that will not widen differences and bring about a velvet divorce between Britain and the EU.

According to Politico, Britain’s exit will cause a serious blow to the economies of EU member-states other than the founding nations, which is what apparently prompted the meeting of the 21 Foreign Ministers in Warsaw who are keen to send a message to decision-makers that a two-speed dynamic cannot be allowed in EU decision-making
