The heads of state and government of all EU member states meeting on 26 October expressed their "common resolve to do their utmost to overcome the crisis and to help face in a spirit of solidarity the challenges confronting the European Union and the Euro area".

 

The leaders agreed a text  "Consensus on banking package", subject to agreement on the measures, it contains, and other elements by the same evening's Euro Summit.

 

"The consensus concerns both the banks' short-term and longer-term needs," Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council, stated at the close of the summit. "The overarching goal of the exercise is to foster confidence in the European banking sector."

 

These measures will be finalised by the Economic and Financial Affairs Council.
