||SOUNDBITE by Viviane Reding (in GERMAN) saying that Europe is a solidarity structure, where we are solidary one with another, like in a family when there is a problem; but like in a family, there is solidarity but also solidity; we can't always expect solidarity, in the family you have to collaborate, respect the rules, and this is the way it has to be in Greece; you have to find the balance between solidity and solidarity.
