Meanwhile, the European Commission will be working on an alternative decision on the issue, President of the European Council Charles Michel and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said at a press conference in Brussels on Friday.

Michel said that the date of the extraordinary summit, which is due at the beginning of the next year, is yet to be determined, adding that it will be held at the end of January or at the beginning of February.
