The European Union summit in Brussels, chaired by Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer, called on Friday on the Iranian authorities to allow peaceful protests against the disputed presidential election. The summit also agreed on concessions designed to spur Ireland to ratify the Lisbon treaty. Leaders of the bloc’s 27 member states also supported the bid of Jose Manuel Barroso for another term as the president of the European Commission. The EU summit in Brussels is the last major event of the Czech presidency of the bloc; the Czech Republic will hand the presidency over to Sweden at the end of the month.
