EU Eyes New Priorities After Deal
European Union leaders say the bloc should turn to new priorities such as globalization now that they have agreed on a treaty to reform Eu institutions. UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said there would be a declaration of new priorities to come before the December Council of Eu leaders. The reform treaty was agreed in Lisbon early on Friday, after much wrangling. The agreement, called the Lisbon Treaty, was sealed after objections from Italy and Poland had been overcome.
