Rhodri in favour of independence?

In a speech at the United Nations headquarters in New York last night, Rhodri Morgan (Unionist & Labour First Minister for Wales) said that he wanted Wales to get more recognition around the world, and complained that Wales didn't have enough influence within the European Union:

In population terms Wales is bigger than five Member States and not very much smaller than another three. Why should this matter? Because Malta, with a population hardly bigger than Cardiff, has a direct seat at the table and access to the entire EU decision making machinery. It also has a much higher number of MEPs in proportion to its population.

Isn't that an argument for Welsh Independence Rhodri?
