Finnish Prime Minister in Malta for talks with PM

European Union issues, which were discussed during the past two days in the European Council in Brussels, were further discussed on Friday evening in Villa Francia, Lija, at a working lunch between Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and Finnish Prime Minister Juha Silipa, shortly after the two Prime Ministers arrived in Malta from Brussels. Finland is currently preparing to take over the EU Presidency at the second half of 2019 and at this stage the Finnish PM is being informed on the positions of member states regarding EU priorities.

After his arrival, Silip was welcomed at Villa Francia, the Prime Minister’s official residence by Dr Joseph Muscat. After the Finnish PM signed the visitors’ book, both Prime Ministers started their meeting.

The two Prime Ministers discussed Finland’s priorities of the European Council when the Nordic country assumes the EU presidency between July and December next year.

Juha Sipila is relatively new in politics. He led the Finnish Central Party to an electoral victory in 2015 and formed a coalition government. He was appointed Prime Minister in May of that year.
