00:00:00 Title 00:00:00
00:00:00 SOUNDBITE (Greek): Marietta GIANNAKOU, (EPP,GR), rapporteur: "In planning and in implementing operations we have problem, because we do not have permanent headquarters. If we have a permanent headquarter through structured cooperation, things would be better, but there is no reaction on behalf of the Council concerning the headquarters. On the operational level, the quick reaction forces, the battle groups are perhaps the most characteristic example of the structural problems we have faced by the Union in order to be efficient and in order to address international crisis efficiently." 00:00:05

00:00:50 SOUNDBITE (Greek): Marietta GIANNAKOU, (EPP,GR), rapporteur: "We have 2 problems, they are know, financing is the one and the procedure of the decision making in order to activate these forces. We could have solution, we have also expenditures which are not related to military operations, and funds for preparations could be included directly into the EU budget." 00:00:23
00:01:13 SOUNDBITE (Portugese): Ana GOMES, (S&D, PT), rapporteur: "The maritime dimension of the Common security and defence policy is vital in putting the EU in the forefront of striving force for security world wide, meeting international obligations, tackling the threats that our citizens face on the continent of Europe. These are the challenges we are faced with." 00:00:21
00:01:34 SOUNDBITE (English): Linas LINKEVICIUS, Lithuanian Foreign Minister, on behalf of the EU Council Presidency: "It must be secured to prevent the seas and oceans to becoming areas of international dispute or heavens for terrorism of international maritime crime in all regional areas and the international areas and the global maritime trade routes are of critical importance, the Gulf of Aden, the Indian ocean are important areas of cooperation, due to the presence there of piracy, protecting vulnerable shipping and fighting piracy." 00:00:27
00:02:01 SOUNDBITE (English): Linas LINKEVICIUS, Lithuanian Foreign Minister, on behalf of the EU Council Presidency: "It must be secured to prevent the seas and oceans to becoming areas of international dispute or heavens for terrorism of international maritime crime in all regional areas and the international areas and the global maritime trade routes are of critical importance, the Gulf of Aden, the Indian ocean are important areas of cooperation, due to the presence there of piracy, protecting vulnerable shipping and fighting piracy." 00:00:34
00:02:35 SOUNDBITE (French): Arnaud DANJEAN, (EPP, FR): "What we are doing here is identify where our shortcomings are, we are not seeking in putting all our capabilities under European standard. The fact is these days no country has everything and we have to work together to solve this." 00:00:24
00:02:59 SOUNDBITE (Greek): Maria Eleni KOPPA, (S&D, GR): "We need a common approach, we need politic, diplomatic, social and economic and military means to be used and in this framework the High Representative must prepare a European strategy for the safety of the seas, to define the framework of the implementation strategy, at the same time a system of exchange of information is necessary." 00:00:17
00:03:16 SOUNDBITE (English): Reinhard B√úTIKOFER, (VERTS/ Ale, DE): "I don't agree with you Ms Giannakou, in our proposal that we should use the EU budget to finance all kinds of defence projects including bying drones together. But what really up sets me is the Gomes report, from my point of view this is a report from Fantasyland, this report honestly proposes that the EU seek global navel power protection from Arctic to the Antarctic, this report honestly proposes that we should build up a capability of deterrence in the Black Sea region, corroborated by the ability to EU navel assets." 00:00:47
