The extraordinary summit across the EU’s budget declared for another day on Friday after leaders failed to reach a bargain despite discussions extending into the wee hours of the afternoon.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte abandoned the very first day of discussions declaring he had”much” by way of an upgrade. But he subsequently struck a conciliatory tone, saying that talks were going on a”measures by measures” basis.

Talks reconvened at 12.00 CET but hopes are that an arrangement will be discovered sooner rather than later.
A source within the summit told Euronews that attendees had originally prepared for the discussions to extend into Saturday, the discussions must finish on Friday.
Even if leaders figure out how to achieve an arrangement, the European Parliament has suggested that it might reject the proposition when it’s brought to a vote.
“The Parliament’s position is quite clear: The (funding ) proposal presented is unacceptable and it will not be voted,” David Sassoli (European Parliament president) told reporters.
