“At this stage, it’s a standstill. There is no progress,” Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite told Reuters after the dinner.

Slovak Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini added: “On the border issue, there has been no progress. We’ll see what the 27 discussion will show tomorrow.” The other 27 member states are due to talk about the issue later on Thursday.
