#Romania Prez @KlausIohannis hit w/ #Brexit q at @MunSecConf, first looked like he wanted to die. Shifted in seat. Took deep breath. & then totally killed it. Hit all #EU talking points- Regret for #UK vote; unity of 27; Withdrawal Treaty best possible deal; Brits' indecision 1/
"We found a good agreement.I consider it a very good agreement. We approved it," he said. "So now we are in the phase where we are waiting for the British approval. Well, here things became more complicated as we all know. There are a number of discussions in their Parliament 2/
"a number of approaches & people always ask: is this going to end with an orderly withdrawal & good future relationship or is this going to end with a no deal Brexit ... Well, frankly, nobody has an answer now about how the leaving is going to happen in the end ..." 3/
"We all would favor an orderly withdrawal, an approval of the agreement, which is the best possible agreement & if I say the best possible agreement, I mean exactly this, in politics or in economic negotiations, it's impossible to find a solution, which is the ideal solution...4/
"...for both sides, you need a compromise. And we found a compromise. It's a good agreement. It's the best one that could be found." (Maybe this is why @MichelBarnier is in Munich, for continuing EU27 message discipline. Either way @KlausIohannis hit his marks.) 5/5
In other words, he made no mistakes. But he also said nothing new, leaving no #Brexit breakthrough anywhere in sight.
