The accession of Slovakia to the euro-zone is on the agenda of the summit, the last under Slovenia's presidency.

The first working session of the European Council started with the topic of food and oil prices.

On Friday, the leaders will look at justice and home affairs, economic, social and environmental issues and reaffirm support for the European perspective of the Western Balkans and underline the need for further action.

France will take the rotating EU presidency next month.
