We are convinced borders must remain open. At the same time, we are also convinced restrictions on non-essential travel must be considered. @EUCouncil  recommendations might have to be adapted in this respect. #EUCO  #COVID19

🇪🇺 Leaders want vaccination to be accelerated. In this respect, commitments on deliveries made by companies must be respected. Vaccines should be distributed at the same time and must be on a pro rata population basis. #EUCO  #COVID19 

In my call with president Putin@Kremlin Russia_E today I reiterated #EU  is united in its condemnation of Alexey #Navalny ’s detention and calls for his immediate release. Russia must urgently proceed with full and transparent investigation into the assassination attempt on him.

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.

@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?

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 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 

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.

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.
