In these testing times, the EU’s unity and sovereignty are our main strengths. Congratulations on your re-election dear Viktor Orban and looking forward to our continued cooperation at the European Council.

Expressed firm solidarity to @sandumaiamd  during her visit to Brussels. Our support to the sovereignty & territorial integrity for your country remains unwavering. We’ll step-up our support to strengthen Moldova’s resilience & for hosting refugees from #Ukraine  with open arms.

Today’s visit to #Hiroshima  highlights the devastating consequences of nuclear weapons. I wish those threatening their use again today could hear atomic bomb survivor Keiko Ogura’s testimony, like I did today. @KremlinRussia_E

Full support to @JosepBorrellF  for his proposal to further increase the funding of the European Peace Facility to 2 billion € for military equipment for #Ukraine  Time is of the essence. #StandbyUkraine  @ZelenskyyUa 

It’s with sadness that we’ve learned of the passing of HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The EU honours his legacy & leadership under which the UAE became frontrunner of sustainable development & economic diversification. Condolences to his family & to the Emirati people.

With Sweden’s application to join @NATO  alongside its strategic partner Finland, our security becomes even stronger. I commend SE and @SwedishPM  on their decision for the benefit of collective security and defense. EU contribution to NATO deterrence is increasingly invaluable.

Discussed with @MichealMartinTD  , the only way forward on Protocol is engagement between EU and UK. Any unilateral action by GB on Protocol - which would undermine its international legal obligations - clearly not welcome all the more so in these difficult geopolitical times.

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.

In Kyiv today. In the heart of a free and democratic Europe. @ZelenskyyUa

Unless there is a change of heart among our British friends, #Brexit  will become a reality – with all its negative consequences - March next year. We, here on the continent, haven’t had a change of heart. Our hearts are still open for you.

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.

Looking at latest decisions of someone could even think: with friends like that who needs enemies. But frankly, EU should be grateful. Thanks to him we got rid of all illusions. We realise that if you need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm.

Waiting for the letter. I just talked to PM @BorisJohnson  about the situation after the vote in the House of Commons.

"Thanks to you, the centre has held through many storms." @BarackObama  addresses a few words to Chancellor Merkel as we are saying goodbye to her in the European Council#EUCO
