Brussels: EU leaders gave the green light for the European Commission to draft a common energy policy for the 25-nation bloc, Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the EU executive, announced.

''I'm very delighted that the European Council (of leaders) is backing our call for an energy policy for Europe, that it makes sense to have a common strategy for Europe,'' Barroso told a news conference yesterday.

One of the key aims of the two-day summit was to define how European Union states can coordinate energy policy, for example by negotiating jointly with suppliers such as Russia, or helping any member country suffering from energy shortages.
