||SOUNDBITE (English): Martin SCHULZ, EP President: "My personal opinion and the opinion of the mayority of the European Parliament is that we need for sure budgetary discipline, but we need also investement in growth and in the fight against unemployment. And I was surprised when I heard about the proposal of the IMF to go now to further cuts by 4.5 Billion Euros, because some weeks ago the IMF said in a kind of criticism that the expectation of the strategy were not achieved and that we therefore need more investments in growth and employment."
