Very concerned about announcements from the British government on its intentions to breach the Withdrawal Agreement. This would break international law and undermines trust. Pacta sunt servanda = the foundation of prosperous future relations.
I trust the British government to implement the Withdrawal Agreement, an obligation under international law & prerequisite for any future partnership. Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland is essential to protect peace and stability on the island & integrity of the single market.
After 30 years we can proudly say: #Erasmus in one of the greatest unifying achievements in the history of our Union.
And it is right that the European budget agreed by the European Council includes a 55% increase for Erasmus.
This is money well spent!
The United States is back. And Europe stands ready.
To reconnect with an old and trusted partner,
to breathe new life into our cherished alliance.
I look forward to working together with @JoeBiden https://t.co/gc7HIIg2Z8
Hallo Europa! Hello Europe! Salut l’Europe! 🇪🇺
Today is the 80th anniversary of a dark chapter in European history, the outbreak of WWII in Poland caused by Nazi Germany.We should remember collectively, learn our lessons individually & act together for the future. For peace. For dignity. For humanity. That's our duty. Forever
Step forward on vaccines.
@AstraZeneca will deliver 9 million additional doses in the first quarter (40 million in total) compared to last week’s offer & will start deliveries one week earlier than scheduled.
The company will also expand its manufacturing capacity in Europe.

Enjoying today’s car-free day in Brussels with a morning run. Best way to recharge batteries and celebrate EU #MobilityWeek.
Wishing you all a happy Sunday! https://t.co/EwRcAPxu50
Great to speak with President-elect @JoeBiden. I congratulated him on his victory. It is a new beginning for the EU-US global partnership.
A strong 🇪🇺 & strong 🇺🇸 working together can shape the global agenda based on cooperation, multilateralism, solidarity and shared values. https://t.co/6iL1uh0F4S
I condemn the detention of Alexei Navalny by the Russian authorities. They must immediately release him and ensure his safety.
Detention of political opponents is against Russia’s international commitments. https://t.co/RRATmAHVvn
Thank you @AbeShinzo for your dedication & contribution to enhancing EU-Japan relations. Under your leadership, our partnership has never been stronger or more crucial.
I wish you good health.
The result for my latest Covid-19 test just came in. I tested negative again. I will continue my self-isolation until tomorrow evening, as foreseen by the regulations in force.
Thank you all for your kind wishes.
I am shocked and saddened by the brutal attack that took place in Vienna. My thoughts are with the families of the victims and the Austrian people.
Europe stands in full solidarity with Austria. We are stronger than hatred and terror.
One image stuck in my mind from the last 6 difficult months. Carola and Vittoria, the two young girls playing tennis between the rooftops of Liguria. It's not just the talent of the girls that sticks out. It's the lesson behind it: not allowing obstacles stand in your way. #SOTEU twitter.com/atptour/status…..
Constructive talks with Prime Minister @BorisJohnson tonight.
We agreed on the principle that there should not be restrictions on the export of vaccines by companies where they are fulfilling contractual responsibilities.
I am delighted that on day one of this new administration, the US will rejoin the #ParisAgreement.
This is the starting point for our renewed cooperation.
And way more is to come.
It was worth fighting for this deal.
We now have a fair & balanced agreement with the UK. It will protect our EU interests, ensure fair competition & provide predictability for our fishing communities.
Europe is now moving on.
I was informed by Chancellor Merkel that Russian opposition leader Navalny was attacked with a nerve agent, in his own country. This is a despicable and cowardly act - once again. Perpetrators need to be brought to justice.
Lieta di annunciare che oggi l'Italia 🇮🇹 ha ricevuto altri € 4,45 miliardi in prestiti nell'ambito di #SURE, lo strumento UE che protegge i lavoratori in #cassaintegrazione e le imprese durante la pandemia.
L'Italia riceverà un totale di € 27,4 mld da SURE. L'Europa è con voi.
I am saddened to hear of the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip.
I would like to extend my sincere sympathy to Her Majesty The Queen, the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom on this very sad day.
Merry Christmas to you and your families and a Happy New Year!
I wish you a peaceful end of 2019. May 2020 be a great year for Europe, and for every European. https://t.co/vJx0UQp4fl
