The EU will not decide on reshuffles to the schedule of rotational presidencies for 2018 before September, member states' leaders have agreed.

The lack of definite timetable for the presidencies, caused by Britain's vote to leave the union, leaves in limbo the exact schedule of the Bulgarian six-month term that was due between July and December 2018.

Before the Brexit referendum, the UK was to host Council of the EU meetings between July and December of next year.

Earlier, Deputy PM Meglena Kuneva had said Bulgaria might have to assume its respective chairmanship six month earlier than expected.
