The EU Heads of State or Government gathered in Brussels on 7 and 8 February 2013 for a European Council meeting to reach an agreement on the EU's budget for the rest of the decade.
They finally agreed on a balanced and growth-oriented budget. The compromise, reached after a marathon negotiation session, led to the first reduction in the EU's multi-annual budget since its formation. SHOTLIST
