No Deal Reached on European Maritime and Fisheries Fund

20 December 2013, at 12:00am

EU - No agreement was made last night (19 December) on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).

Despite substantial progress, Parliament and Council could not agree on the few outstanding issues.

The negotiations were almost concluded and a deal on the EMFF was expected to be announced Friday morning, said EU Fisheries Commissioner Maria Damanaki.

Now, instead, the European Parliament rapporteur Alain Cadec will hold a press conference Friday morning at 10:00 to explain why the Parliament delegation walked out of the negotiations.
