Press conference by José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, following the award of the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, gave a press conference following the award of the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize to the EU. He highlighted that the Nobel Peace Prize Committee and the international community sent a very important message to Europe that the European Union was something very precious, that should be cherished for the good of Europeans and for the good of the entire world.
He added that it was a great honour for all the 500 million citizens of Europe, for all the Member States and all the European institutions to receive this Nobel Prize for Peace. It was justified recognition for a unique project that worked for the benefit of its citizens and also for the benefit of the world.
The President then said that we must never forget that at its origins the EU brought together nations emerging from the ruins of the devastating 2nd World War and united them in a project for peace, built on supranational institutions representing the common European interest. He concluded by saying that the EU, starting with the European Community, had reunified countries split by the Cold War, and made it around values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, justice, the rule of law and respect for human rights.
After the press conference José Manuel Barroso received a bunch of flowers from the hands of Atle Laivoll, Head of the Mission of Norway to the EU.
