Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Council of the EU is the same thing as the European Council and it meets in a veriety of "configurations" depending on the issues. One of the "configurations" is the "heads of state or government". That is the only one chaired by the Council President (head of state/government of the presiding nation). The "general affairs" configuration is chaired by the Foreign Minister of the presiding nation.
