New post-Brexit EU summit Feb 3 in Malta: source

European Union leaders will meet in Malta in February to help prepare for a summit the following month in aimed at revitalising a bloc without Britain, an EU source said today.

"I can confirm that the Malta Summit at EU 27 will take place on the 3rd of February," an EU source who asked not to be named told AFP.

The 27 leaders without British Prime Minister Theresa May earlier this month in Bratislava, promising to forge a new vision for a bloc rocked by Brexit, the worst migrant crisis since World War II, terrorist attacks and a stuttering economy.

Valletta will play host as it assumes the rotating six-month presidency of the EU in January after Slovakia.

The EU source said the agenda of the Malta meeting is still to be determined but it will be "basically a follow-up to Bratislava and preparation for the Summit in March," which marks the 60th anniversary of the bloc's founding treaty signed in the Italian capital.

May has said will not trigger Article 50, which sets the two-year Brexit talks in motion, before the end of this year.

Her EU peers have repeatedly called on her to move quickly so as to end the uncertainty over Britain's future relations with the bloc.

A regular EU summit is also scheduled for the end of October in Brussels, leading up to another in December.
