EU leaders will not select candidates for the European Council presidency or the bloc's foreign policy chief at this week's summit, diplomatic sources said Wednesday. They are expected to nominate Jean-Claude Juncker as the next European Commission president, and will meet on 16 July following the EP's vote on him.
