European Union leaders will put the terror attack in France at the top of their agenda when they meet on Feb. 12.

EU President Donald Tusk said Friday that he intends to use the session “to discuss more broadly the response the EU can bring to these challenges.”

Tusk says he took the decision following talks Thursday with French President Francois Hollande.

In a statement after talks in Riga with Latvia’s prime minister, Tusk said: “The European Union cannot do everything - but it can contribute to strengthening our security.”
