Visit of Joachim Gauck, Federal President of Germany, to José Manuel Barroso

48 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, received Joachim Gauck, Federal President of Germany. The discussions focused on democracy, values like freedom and solidarity, the European economy and integration. During the joint press conference, José Manuel Barroso noticed with great satisfaction that the new President was fully committed to continue the historically pro-European position of his country. He shared with Joachim Gauck his personal appreciation for his life-long fight for freedom and for his courage to call on citizens to "dare more Europe".
José Manuel Barroso then added that the Federal President was very well placed to lead by example. He further underlined that Europe needed leaders and citizens to stand up for Europe to explain its achievements and promote its benefits. He concluded by insisting that no one should believe that the European project and its achievements were irreversible or could be taken for granted.
