EU officials may seem pretty confident that they have an agreement that will be acceptable to the Turkish government but doubts remain as to whether it is compliant with international law.
How do you see Europe's handling of this crisis? How would you rate how Europe has handled this?
Prosecutors have opened what they are calling an anti-terror investigation. Many details remain unclear. Police believe some gunmen may still be on the run.
Parisians are trying to return to their normal lives, but the question is what will happen when the three days of national mourning come to an end. Politicians from both the left and the right are trying to position themselves as being the toughest on terror.
So the EU's courting of President Erdogan continues. Officials on the sidelines here are talking about a possible EU summit later this month with the Turkish leader.
Many western countries have made similar pledges to address the route causes of migration in the past, why is this different this time?
The focus now shifts to Turkey, which this weekend hosts the G20 Summit, a forum normally dedicated to economic policy. There, the EU hopes to convince the world's biggest economies that Europe's migration crisis is theirs as well.
Why is Mr. Putin offering this so-called olive branch on Syria now?
David Cameron has passed the first challenge by forming a government. Now the bigger one is convincing parliamentarians to back the kind of change that he wants to bring about.
Another election and it looks like another parliament where no party will command a majority. If the polls are right, British voters seem deeply unsatisfied with the current political system, which has been dominated by the Conservatives and Labour for decades. The calls for reform are likely to grow ever louder once a new government is in place.
Please vote for me, we're not quite as ghastly as the other people.
A failure by Nigel Farage to win this seat in the House of Commons could come at a high personal price. The British MEP says he'll resign as party leader if he loses this contest.
Get the right people in. We don't want people wandering about. Turning up in the country. Having the help ( claiming benefits) and for no reason.
Have there been any examples when economic sanctions have changed the foreign policy of a major power such as Russia?
With little progress made on returning failed asylum seekers to Africa, the EU is still struggling for a coherent strategy to this migration crisis. Indeed as the bloc seeks help from African nations as well as Turkey, it seems the only strategy that Europe has, is to make it somebody elses' problem.
There are a number of key questions still to be asked of the US-led strategy against ISIL. What future for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad? Where does it leave the other opposition forces fighting against him? And can military force really destroy a jihadist ideology? It's the strategy that the US and its allies have been using in the fight against al Qaeda for well over a decade.
The yes campaign may have failed this time, but with so many Scots voting to split from the United Kingdom the Westminster elites can no longer ignore their voices. That's why the three main parties will be setting out more proposals to grant Scotland greater autonomy over the coming months.
There've been so many false dawns in this conflict before. The decision for President Poroshenko is whether he thinks Mr Putin is sincere about brokering an end to this conflict or merely protecting Russian interests.
There is a broad consensus her that military strikes alone won't be enough to tackle the Islamic State. Obama and Cameron will need to seek support from those in the region. But, some say they won't solve the problem without the backing of Iran, and seeking support from Syria's President Assad.
Well to answer your question, really the people of Eindhoven have been trying to get back to normality already. As I said there have been those services in churches, in schools and offices across the country and that's the way the Dutch people are trying to deal with this terrible tragedy.
We were walking around Eindhoven this morning speaking to locals and to sum up the mood it really was a mix of grief, anger and disbelief. A lot of people were asking themselves how this could happen to Dutch citizens? Many of them had just broken up from school, from university, were taking their annual vacation on their way to Malaysia and further afield. Really a lot of anger not just on the streets of Eindhoven but across the Netherlands. You will have seen the massive floral tributes at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam that have been amassed over the past few days.
If the Commission finds that these three member states have indeed broken the rules, the companies involved could be asked to pay back any 'lost' revenues.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel was less than enthusiastic when she was asked to endorse the former PM of Luxembourg to take over at the EU executive. If leaders and the European Parliament can't strike a compromise deal over the next few weeks, it could spell the start of a bitter row here in Brussels…at a time when voters are urging governments to do more to fix the economy.
Nigel Farage, thank you very much for being here on euronews. First of all, what kind of party is UKIP and who do they appeal to?
Supporters of David Moyes said he needed time to turn it around. But English football is a very different sport from all those years ago. Money and commercial success mean everything. The club's failure to qualify for next season's Champion League will cost it some 50 million euros.
It is interesting that Ukraine is going to be a key foreign policy issue for Obama over the coming months. Could we say that this rebalancing, or pivot, to Asia…whatever you want to call it…is going to have to be radically reviewed – that in fact Europe's borders are again going to be the centre of American foreign policy, going forward?
First, it is not legally binding, relying on the goodwill of all the nations involved. And another key question is just how far-reaching the deal is when Russia, the country with the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons in the world, has refused to sign up.
In 2009 it was the US President who said he wanted a reset in relations with Russia. Now the very same man has led calls here to suspend Russia from the G8. A new Cold War? Well maybe not. But amid all the US talk of pivots to Asia, it is clear that Europe's borders have once again become the epicentre of global geopolitics.
It seems like such a long time ago that protesters were descending onto Maidan square in Kiev waving EU flags, but since then the bloc has struggled to remain relevant and able to influence events in its own backyard. And even if EU foreign ministers decide that sanctions are the next step to solve this crisis, for most of the demonstrators it will be too little too late.
However German Chancellor Angela Merkel has staked a lot of political capital on getting a deal on shadow banking – what's that? Basically financial institutions that lend in the same way that banks do, but operate outside the traditional banking regulations. So, the argument goes that we need to tighten up regulations on the shadow banks to avoid a repeat of the easy credit crisis of 2007/8. Now what we're hearing from EU officials is that there's likely to be little in the way of an agreement on that, all pointing towards a defeat for German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Well, officials have already admitted on the sidelines of this summit that there will be an agreement on tax evasion and tax avoidance. It will endorse an early accord struck by G20 Finance Ministers in Moscow in July. The idea is two things really – an automatic exchange of information, which one OECD official described as the end of banking secrecy – and then having the OECD provides oversight so that companies can't shift profits around.
It's going to be a very lonely place for US President Barack Obama in the Palace behind me as he holds talks on the issue with other G20 leaders. The reason being that even traditional allies, the European Union, the European Council President, Herman Van Rompuy, has come out and said very clearly that there is no military solution to the Syrian crisis, and that any military intervention should go through the Security Council.
The Times' welcomes the future king, with the headline 'A Prince is Born' and provides a special royal supplement. It is only really 'The Independent' newspaper which dares to be different. It goes with the headline 'Cameron Retreats in War on Internet Porn', obviously with one eye on the general election and the picture of course outside Buckingham Palace.
As the news of the royal baby's arrival filtered down, the crowd behind me erupted in celebration. William and Catherine's son is the third in line to the British throne and he will take the title His Royal Highness, the Prince of Cambridge.
G8 members have an ambitious agenda over the next two days. But the world is a very different place to when this club was created. Can these eight leaders really deliver on promises they are about to make, when emerging superpowers such as China and India aren't even sitting at the table?
A decade ago an Italian gang broke into a diamond centre in Antwerp, acting on what turned out to be inside information. The ringleader of that gang was an employee. Many traders here in Antwerp's Diamond Quarter say the Brussels heist was carried out with such precision that they believe that too was an inside job.
But you just jailed some opposition journalists….
Does freedom of expression exist in Iran?
Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi, thank you very much for being with us here on euronews. Iran and Syria say they are going to respond to the reported Israeli air strike on a Syrian weapons base. Is that true?
The Palestinians say they have been waiting since 1947 to have some kind of recognition of statehood. What is Israel scared of in opposing this move?
Greece will get its next slice of bailout cash in three instalments, but only if it ploughs on with agreed reforms. In particular the troika of international lenders wants to see changes to the Greek tax system if that money is to be released.
Stefan, can you give us an idea of what the mood is like inside the Obama camp?
Professor Kupchan, just a few weeks ago, most pundits were writing off any chance of Mitt Romney winning the White House. How has he staged such a dramatic comeback in such a short time?
What are the big challenges the National Transitional Council (NTC) have to face?
