EU leaders suspend talks without deal


EU leaders suspended a summit on Monday after 20 hours of talks failed to produce a deal on who should get the bloc’s top jobs, prompting anger from French President Emmanuel Macron who said Europe’s indecision was hurting its image abroad.

Their inability to find consensus candidates during marathon negotiations that ran through the night reflected the fragmented state of the bloc’s parliament, and underlined the problems in reaching a common position on issues from migration to climate change that have grown as the bloc has expanded.
