00:00:26 SOUNDBITE (German): Barbara LOCHBIHLER (Verts/ALE, DE), Chair of the Subcommitte of Human Rights of the European Parliament: (comments in her welcome speech to President SCHULZ on her observations in Turkey) : "This weekend I was in Turkey and I have witnessed excessive police force and I had the opportunity to meet with the people of the Chamber of doctors and the Chamber of lawyers. 7000 injured have taken place, 4 dead and 2 very seriously injured. The police did not allow the ambulances to continue to work and the Minister of Health said that he is not sure if the protesters deserve to get medical treatment. And we don't know if the injured people have been treated properly. And I have a report from the Chamber of lawyers where those lawyers who had been defending the protesters had been targeted. So the main wave of violence is over but I heard now that it is the beginning to arrest protesters in their homes." 00:01:14
00:01:40 SOUNDBITE (German): Martin SCHULZ, EP President: (on the partnership agreement - and the clause of Human Rights standards) "I think that the idea of conditionality in our neighbourhood policy is something we should take very seriously, we also have to realise that this policy of conditionally can only be useful if it is actually put into force by treaties or by action." 00:00:22
00:02:02 SOUNDBITE (German): Martin SCHULZ, EP President: (speaking about the 2 'special envoyé' to Ukraine that are following the process of Yulia Tymoshenko) "In the case of Tymoshenko, we have not reached our objective there, but one effect of that is that the European Parliament is now being perceived as a body that can act creditability; we can carry out practical policies which are necessary, these occurring problems that we need to tackle and we do that by offering individual protection and offering individual support for single cases of Human Breach." 00:00:34
