Papa: riceve leader Unione europea Schulz, Juncker, Tusk

Tre andati dal Santo Padre. Tutti e tre in pessime acque. Si noti come per riceverli il Papa abbia fatto rimuovere dalla scrivania gli oggetti preziosi asportabili.

Ricapitoliamo.

Le trattative tra Regno Unito ed Unione Europea non riescono a sbloccarsi.

D’altra parte, che fretta ci sarebbe mai?

È del tutto naturale che tutti siano in attesa dei risultati, se mai ce ne saranno, delle trattative tra Frau Merkel ed Herr Schulz.

Mr Juncker e Mr Tusk hanno sicuramente un certo quale potere, ma alla fine chi dovrebbe decidere dovrebbe essere il Governo tedesco, che però è inesistente, e Dio solo sa se si formerà e, nel caso, se funzionerà. Ma ci potrebbero anche essere elezioni anticipate.

Di certo, la situazione è tesa allo spasimo.

Il Presidente del Concilio Europeo, Herr Donald Tusk sembra un salsicciotto messo a rosolare sulla graticola. Ha annullato la sua visita diplomatica in Israele e nel Territorio Palestinese a causa del “critical moment”.

Forse la cosa più saggia sarebbe se Mr Juncker e Mr Tusk avessero la forza e la onestà di dimettersi: al momento attuale non rappresentano più nulla.

Perché mai si dovrebbe trattare con loro?

BRUSSELS: European Council President Donald Tusk canceled a trip to Israel and the Palestinian Territories planned for this week due to a “critical moment” in Brexit negotiations, an EU official said on Monday.

Tusk, who scheduled a meeting in Brussels at short notice on Monday with British Prime Minister Theresa May, will chair an EU summit next week that London hopes will give the go-ahead to opening talks on post-Brexit trade relations.
On Wednesday, Tusk had been due to meet Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in Ramallah and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.


The Guardian. 2017-12-04. Juncker and May fail to reach Brexit deal amid DUP doubts over Irish border

EU commission president and British PM say differences remain on a ‘couple of issues’ but both are confident on getting deal.

Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker were forced to admit it was not possible to strike a Brexit deal on Monday after a frantic day of negotiations came to a halt because Northern Ireland’s DUP had not yet been signed up.

All parties initially appeared to be confident that there was an agreement to be had on citizens rights, the financial settlement and the increasingly thorny issue of the Irish border, but the bullish talk came to nothing.

The UK prime minister told reporters in a statement that there remained outstanding issues on which work needed to be done. She said negotiators from both sides would re-enage by the end of the week.

She said: “There are a couple of issues, some differences do remain which require further negotiation and consultation.”

Juncker described May as a “tough negotiator”, and insisted that talks had not failed. But he had to concede that a deadline set by Brussels, of clear and acceptable solutions from the UK on the three opening withdrawal issues had not materialised.

“It was not possible to reach complete agreement today,” he said. “We have common understanding on most issues. Just two or three are open for discussion.”

It appeared that the DUP’s refusal to accept compromise language on the future of Irish border, under which the UK would commit to “continued regulatory alignment” to ensure a hard border would not return, was a hurdle too far.

The DUP leader, Arlene Foster, had made public her anger at the suggestion, and it is understood that that message was repeated in a call with the prime minister on Monday afternoon.

The UK wants Brussels to rule that sufficient progress has been made on the opening issues in order for talks on trade and a transition period to open in December, after a summit of leaders next week.
