00:00:45 SOUNDBITE (English) Enda KENNY, Taoiseach : “Lack of confidence and lack of conviction in following the decision made at Council meetings have been and are always a source of frustration, cynicism and angriness. That an issue that I intend to address. So far as we can do that with our colleagues, that we translate the decision made in to reality". 00:00:27
00:01:12 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin SCHULZ, EP President : “It is an enormous lack of trust also if foreign investors in the future of the Eurozone. How to regain trust? Trust is an economic capital, perhaps more than founds and bank accounts, trust is a pre condition for growth”. 00:00:23
00:01:35 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin SCHULZ, EP President : "The possibility to get immediately money mobilised in the fight against unemployment of young people , and the fact that you put the youth guarantee on the first place of your commitments show that you are, you and your government, and also the priorities of the parliament here , absolutely in line with the priorities of the European Parliament". 00:00:25
00:02:00 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin SCHULZ, EP President : “We all looked to Ireland in the moment of the deepest crises. The risk of the bank melt down, here , in this country , is to affect the whole banking system of the EU. The burdens on the shoulders of tax payers in this country was an act of solidarity of Irish people with others. So it is now justified that we are solitaire with Ireland”. 00:00:30

00:02:35 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin SCHULZ, EP President : “Enhanced cooperation : art 20 is in the Treaty , it was especially introduced in the treaty because we know that the EU is a heterogeneous union with various, heterogeneous interests. Thinks with matter for some countries are delicate and difficult for other ones , therefore this art 20 is existing. I understand, not from a political party point of view – we have different opinions, we were quite clear about this – but from institutional point of view I understand the Irish reluctance . I’ve asked the prime minister and the Dáil (President of the Chamber) today , to accept that those how wish to introduce – their demands – should be the right to do it”. 00:00:47
