Finland PM Sanna Marin Takes on Brexit, Climate at First EU Summit
The newly appointed Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin chaired her first - and last - EU summit as Finland will leave the rotating EU presidency at the end of the year.
Only two days into her premiership, 34 year-old Marin hit the ground running on the international stage, to discuss Brexit and the climate crisis.
Talking about climate agreements at the summit, Marin said that it had been Finland's key priority to make a common decision about Europe become climate neutral by 2050.
"I am very glad that we could, that we have achieved decision together last night about this," she said, calling it a "major step forward."
On Brexit she welcomed the decisive action brought by the UK elections yesterday.
"This is a good thing that we now have clarity and we shall see how the process will continue," she said.
Answering a question about her age and diversity in the European Council, she said people from different generations and backgrounds were needed to make good decisions in society.
