“He will debrief the ministers, we will have a discussion and... I think, I expect you will hear from us together in the course of the morning with a joint position (on the issue),” Mogherini told reporters, referring to a common EU statement expected later on Monday.

“I always expect unity,” she said of EU solidarity for Britain over the issue.
