Congratulations @P_Fiala on the launch of your @eucouncil presidency.
You are taking the reins at a turning point for the EU.
Never has our Union faced such great challenges.
I know we can count on your leadership and on the people of the Czech Republic 🇨🇿
The EU will continue to provide robust support to #Ukraine. Financial, humanitarian, and political.
But Ukraine needs more.
We are ready to play an important role in Ukraine's reconstruction.
The destruction is massive. And so are the needs.
We understand the serious consequences due to inflation and high prices.
It is the responsibility of the EU to take the right decisions. We will cooperate, coordinate and work together.
I am confident that we will be able to make progress on this important topic. @P_Fiala
Together we must live up to our goal of phasing out Russian gas, oil and coal.
By diversifying our energy sources, bolstering energy efficiency and speeding up renewable and low-energy sources.
You will have the important task of leading the negotiations on these topics.
Welcome @Europe2022FR solution for an agreement that would pave the way for opening of EU accession talks with North Macedonia.

We are the closest we have ever been: now is the time to say yes.

EU and @NATO stand together today in Madrid, united in support to Ukraine and its people and in condemning Russia’s war against #Ukraine
EU-#NATO strategic partnership is stronger and more relevant than ever as EU concretely strengthens its own defence capabilities.
Congratulated President @sukyeol__yoon on recent election at #NATOSummit

We commit further support to advance the process pursuing much needed reforms.
Discussed Türkiye’s support to @UN and @antonioguterres efforts to unblock grain exports from #Ukraine with President @RTErdogan in Madrid.
Russia’s military aggression and its invasion of a sovereign nation is unacceptable.
Discussed deeper cooperation with @AlboMP
🇦🇺 is a trusted partner of #EU in #IndoPacific
Your role in enforcing sanctions against 🇷🇺 is essential & support to #Ukraine has been outstanding
Together we can progress on global issues from climate change to strengthening democracy
Talked with India prime minister @narendramodi on bilateral and global matters at @G7
EU and India is stepping up efforts on trade to use all bilateral potential.
We discussed the global consequences of Russia's aggression against #Ukraine
Horrendous indiscriminate strike by Russian missiles on the shopping centre in #Kremenchuk
Russian scare and intimidation tactics will never work.
#Ukraine will prevail with support of its partners at @G7 and beyond.
My profound condolences to families of the victims.
To @alferdez reiterated EU's commitment to work together towards EU-CELAC summit
Let’s strengthen our
cooperation as multilateral system is under threat from war against #Ukraine
