EU leaders voice solidarity with virus-hit Spain

BRUSSELS: The leaders of EU institutions on Wednesday expressed solidarity with Spain as it struggles with an escalating coronavirus emergency.
“I want you to know that we are working tirelessly to help you -- you are not alone,” European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen said in a video message posted on her official Twitter account.
Charles Michel, the head of the European Council that coordinates between the leaders of the EU member states, said in a public letter to Spain that “Europe stands by your side in full solidarity, and we will spare no effort to help you”.
European Parliament speaker David Sassoli joined in by tweeting to Spanish citizens that “the difficulties and problems you are experiencing are also ours”. (AFP)
