00:01:10 SOUNDBITE (German): Martin SCHULZ, EP President (during press conference): I urged the Head of States and government on how we can win back trust that has been lost. Trust that has been lost at National level but also at European level and how are we going to do that if we are speaking a language nobody really understands, and that concerns also the Parliament. 01:30 00:00:20
00:01:30 SOUNDBITE (German): Martin SCHULZ, EP President (during press conference): Our main job is to simply, we need to simplify things by going back to community method. 00:00:11
00:01:41 SOUNDBITE (German): Martin SCHULZ, EP President (during press conference): There is 25 Billion missing and how are we are going to plug that gap , There is a 100 Billion that is still owed to the COM, so we are getting ourselves in a structural deficit. We don’t want to talk about more money, we want to talk about the commitment and payments. 00:00:39
00:02:20 SOUNDBITE (German): Martin SCHULZ, EP President: One year ago we have decided on a 120 Billion growth package. I would like to know which measures had been realised with this money. The Member states say, in Brussels we spend less money, one of our main conflicts that we are having between the EP and the governments. At the same time do we have this 120 Billion package, if it is not financed here, than the Member States have to tell how they have realised their decisions. (original in DE) Wir haben vor einem Jahr ein Wachstumspaket 120 Milliarden beschlossen, ich hatte gerne gewusst welche Massnahmen mit diesem Geld umgestezt wurden. Die Mitgliedstaaten sagen auf der einen Seite wird in Brüssel weniger Geld ausgegeben, einer der Hauptkonflikte die wir als EP mit den Regierungen austragen. Gleichzeitig gibt es ein 120 Milliard Paket, wenn das nicht hier finanziert wird , dann muss es in de Mitgliedsstaaten finanziert werden, die müssen uns also sagen , was in Ihren eigen Beschlüsse bisher umgesetzt worden ist. 00:00:31
