BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The EU’s hard-won deal on a massive recovery plan for its coronavirus-hit economies showed that its 27 nations could stand together with a common belief in their future, European Council President Charles Michel said on Tuesday.
“This agreement sends a concrete signal that Europe is a force for action,” he said at a dawn news conference after chairing a fractious summit that went through the night into a fifth day.
“It is about a lot more than money. It is about workers and families, their jobs, their health and their well-being. I believe this agreement will be seen as a pivotal moment in Europe’s journey, but it will also launch us into the future.”
