We are in a #climateemergency . Right now! We need to revolutionise our approach to fight #ClimateChange . We've had the industrial revolution, the technological revolution, we now need a "Green Revolution". #Cop25Madrid  #EUatCOP25

Europe has set itself a clear goal: it wants to champion the #GreenTransition  . It wants to be the first climate neutral continent on the planet. But the EU should also support countries in transition. It is our duty to help the most vulnerable countries globally. #Cop25Madrid 

Healthy climate, healthy development—we can do both. #Cop25Madrid 

We are one planet … we need one approach! We need a comprehensive, global #GreenTransition  , just and socially balanced to ensure no-one is left behind. My remarks at #Cop25Madrid  :

@BorisJohnson , what’s at stake is not winning some stupid blame game. At stake is the future of Europe and the UK as well as the security and interests of our people. You don’t want a deal, you don’t want an extension, you don’t want to revoke, quo vadis?

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.

If a deal is impossible, and no one wants no deal, then who will finally have the courage to say what the only positive solution is?

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.

To my British friends, The EU27 has formally adopted the extension. It may be the last one. Please make the best use of this time. I also want to say goodbye to you as my mission here is coming to an end. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

The extension request has just arrived. I will now start consulting EU leaders on how to react. #Brexit 

Following PM @BorisJohnson ’s decision to pause the process of ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, and in order to avoid a no-deal #Brexit , I will recommend the EU27 accept the UK request for an extension. For this I will propose a written procedure.

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.

The EU27 has agreed that it will accept the UK's request for a #Brexit  flextension until 31 January 2020. The decision is expected to be formalised through a written procedure.

For EU nothing changes. Spain remains our only interlocutor. I hope the Spanish government favours force of argument, not argument of force.
