An agreement on the draft conclusions of the General Affairs Council was largely reached on Friday at a meeting of the Committee of Permanent Representatives, made up of member state ambassadors. The draft conclusions should be adopted at the General Affairs Council video-conference to be held on Tuesday.
 
The Croatian EU Presidency has proposed that the Commission draft a proposal for a Negotiating Framework for "both countries without delay, and no later than June", however, member states were unable to reach an agreement on the motion, indicating that some member states want to delay the process further before the actual start of negotiations.
