Cooperation is key to defeating #COVID19 . The EU has mobilised almost €2.5 billion for #COVAX to provide vaccines around the world. #Angola is no exception. We need to increase vaccine production to guarantee supplies to COVAX centres in #Luanda & elsewhere #AUEU #TeamEurope

Appeal to EP: You should be open to a long extension, if the UK wishes to rethink its strategy. 6 million people signed the petition, 1 million marched. They may not feel sufficiently represented by UK Parliament but they must feel represented by you. Because they are Europeans.
I've been wondering what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted #Brexit , without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely.
The backstop is an insurance to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland unless and until an alternative is found. Those against the backstop and not proposing realistic alternatives in fact support reestablishing a border. Even if they do not admit it.
For EU nothing changes. Spain remains our only interlocutor. I hope the Spanish government favours force of argument, not argument of force.
The extension request has just arrived. I will now start consulting EU leaders on how to react. #Brexit
