Commission midday briefings are funny, actually

Juncker spokesperson Margaritis Schinas announced on Thursday (8 April) that all members of the EU family have the same worldview.

Asked to comment on the visit of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to Moscow, Schinas said, “All members of the family don’t travel necessarily at the same places, but they are all members of the family and they have the same view of the world.”

Asked by EURACTIV to elaborate if indeed all EU member states had the same views on global issues, Schinas said:

“I’m not quite understanding your interpretation of my understanding, but I’m not engaged in an interpretation of your interpretation of what I just said.”
