Emmanuel Macron’s plans for a new European Political Community were almost thrown into disarray by disagreements over where each of the 44 leaders would sit at the summit.

The new forum of EU and non-EU nations, the brainchild of the French president, began in Prague on Thursday.

But officials admitted that finding the right seating plan was a major headache, forcing hours of talks between senior diplomats because of long-standing and new disputes between the countries attending.

......

Serbia and Kosovo are both attending the summit, but in a legacy of the break-up of Yugoslavia, Belgrade still refuses to recognise its neighbour as an independent country.

......

Meanwhile, Turkey is embroiled in a row with Sweden and is threatening to block the country’s application to join Nato.

......

The Turkish president, a Muslim, was said to want to avoid being placed near fellow leaders if they are drinking alcohol. He will also refuse to be associated with his Armenian counterpart, over a long-running dispute over genocide.

Matters are further complicated by September’s border clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia, which are also both at the European Political Community.

......

The Greeks, Cypriots and Turkish delegations also cannot be placed in the same working groups.

Pension funds managing vast sums on behalf of retired people across Britain came close to collapse amid an “unprecedented” meltdown in UK government bond markets after Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini-budget, the Bank of England has said.

Explaining its emergency intervention to calm turmoil in financial markets last week, the central bank said pension funds with more than £1tn invested in them came under severe strain with a “large number” in danger of going bust.

The Bank said a dramatic rise in interest rates on long-dated UK government bonds in the days immediately after the chancellor’s mini-budget had triggered a “self-reinforcing” spiral in debt markets, putting the stability of Britain’s financial system at risk.

Had the Bank not intervened with a promise to buy up to £65bn of government debt, funds managing money on behalf of pensioners across the country “would have been left with negative net asset value” and cash demands they could not have met.

“As a result, it was likely that these funds would have to begin the process of winding up the following morning,” the Bank said.
