Leaders discussed the consequences of the UK referendum

"We are determined to remain united and work in the framework of the EU to deal with the challenges of the 21st century and find solutions in the interest of our nations and peoples," said the 27 leaders in their joint statement after the informal meeting on 29 June. They also called on the UK government to notify the European Council of its intention to withdraw from the EU as quickly as possible. 

The 27 leaders will meet again in September to continue talks on the future of the EU. 

A day earlier, on 28 June, the European Council also focused on the outcome of the UK referendum. Prime Minister David Cameron presented the situation in the country after the vote.

The EU leaders also addressed other pressing issues: migration, external relations and the economic situation.

Eurooppa-neuvosto

Eurooppa-neuvostoon kuuluvat jäsenvaltioiden valtion- tai hallitusten päämiehet sekä Eurooppa-neuvoston puheenjohtaja ja Euroopan komission puheenjohtaja. Se määrittelee EU:n politiikan yleisen suunnan ja prioriteetit.

EU:n neuvosto

EU:n neuvosto (epävirallisesti myös EU-neuvosto tai ministerineuvosto) edustaa jäsenvaltioiden hallituksia. Siinä kokoontuvat EU-maiden ministerit, ja sen tehtävänä on hyväksyä lainsäädäntöä ja koordinoida politiikkoja.

Mikä on neuvosto?

Eurooppa-neuvosto ja EU:n neuvosto ovat toimieliminä läheisesti yhteydessä toisiinsa. Niillä on samankaltaiset nimet, ne toimivat samoissa rakennuksissa ja niillä on yhteinen henkilöstö, neuvoston pääsihteeristö. Niiden roolit ja jäsenet ovat kuitenkin hyvin erilaisia.
