Iohannis: I explained to EU leaders multi-speed Europe is not a good solution, could end in split-up

President Klaus Iohannis, speaking after the European Council's meeting, said that he explained to EU leaders that a multi-speed Europe is not a good solution and that in extremis it might end in splitting the Union, according to Agerpres.

He added that informal talks were held on the Declaration to be adopted in Rome, and which has been prepared in a first version.

"All of us - the 27 - have referred to this submitted paper. Contrary to the expectations of many analysts, we didn′t address the future of the EU, but the text that will certainly be lodged in Rome, a paper that underlines the Union′s achievements so far, showing the level of ambition for the future," said Iohannis. "Overall, we wish a positive paper that gives us the courage to carry on within the European Union. The future ambitions could not be talked about without tiny mentions in relation to the way we all see the future of the European Union, and in this respect, I explained to my colleagues why a multi-speed Europe is not a good solution, but on the contrary, it is a solution which in extremis could end in splitting the European Union."

According to the Romanian head of state, the European leaders will further focus on the text that is to be signed in Rome, after which talks on the White Paper presented by the European Commission′s President, Jean-Claude Juncker, will follow.
"We′ll try, within one or two years at the most, to outline our common vision of the future of the European Union," added Iohannis.

Will the European forums receive the message of Mr. johannis? I think the eastern part of Europe is becoming increasingly neglected or isolated?
