The Southern Europe’s heads of state will come together for the sixth South EU Summit this Friday at Auberge de Castille in Valletta.
This summit follows a previous informal gathering in Romania among leaders of the EU27, which resulted in the signing of the Sibiu Declaration – setting forth intentions to keep Europe united, and safeguard its democracy.
The summit, first piloted in Athens back in September 2016, brings together the heads of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus and Malta. Representing roughly 40% of the European Union’s population along with half of its coastline, the summit has evolved into a continued gathering among Southern European leaders engaging in discussions aimed at bringing the best out of similarities across the Southern Member States to present a united front on various objectives. This is also done in the context of the informal gathering held in Romania which saw the signing of the Sibiu Declaration, setting the stage for a more united Europe committed to safeguarding democracy.« Back
