EU leaders agree 3% budget cut deal in Brussels


EU leaders have reached an agreement on the budget for 2014-20 after lengthy talks in Brussels.
European Council President Herman Van Rompuy announced the deal and said in a statement it was "worth working for".
The new budget ceiling amounts to 960bn euros (£812bn; $1.3tn). It is the first time the EU's multi-annual budget has been reduced.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who had been pressing for cuts, hailed it as a "good deal for Britain".
"I think the British public can be proud that we have cut the seven-year credit card limit for the EU for the first time ever," Mr Cameron said.
French President Francois Hollande, who had argued against big spending cuts, said it was a "good compromise".
German Chancellor Angela Merkel also welcomed the deal, which represents a 3.3% reduction from the previous seven-year budget.

  1. Thank you for sharing this, I have to write a dissertation on the European annual budget and for that, I was gathering all the possible data and sources to give it to my friend who has agreed to write my dissertation for me – a friend in need is a friend indeed!

  2. I also attended this workshop because I follow euroalert.net on Twitter, and I am constantly updated with their next moves. The day I participated in this workshop, I found this genuine thesis help services provider who assured me that if any student requires assistance in their academic career, that person will help them and make their lives easier. This felt so good because this was new at that time, and now, things are done only like this. This is because students are tired of doing assignments on their own that is taking assignment help has become common.
