6. Statements
00:19:36 SOUNDBITE by José Manuel Barroso (in ENGLISH) saying that the G20 leaders, after a very good, frank and open discussion, recognized the extremely important efforts that Europe has been doing to deal with the financial crisis; so it was very good to understand the questions and to work cooperatively for the solution of the global financial crisis, including of course the European part of it; secondly - and that is even more interesting - there is today an overall, international appeal for Europe to be more united, to go deeper in integration; this is extremely interesting to listen to all parts of the world, from the United States to Asia, to ask the European Union, and namely the euro area, to deepen its integration, to build a banking union, through economic and monetary union, and even making appeals to a political union; saying that today, the appeals for a stronger, more integrated European Union and euro area are not just coming from all the true believers in the European project, it has become a real systemic global necessity, and this is one of the important messages of this G20. 00:01:37
00:21:13 DECLARATION de Herman van Rompuy (en ANGLAIS) disant qu'ils ont discuté de l'état d'avancement de l'économie mondiale; il y a beaucoup de faiblesses, non seulement les problèmes de la zone euro, mais aussi la volatilité sur les marchés du pétrole et les déséquilibres internes dans de nombreux pays, aux Etats-Unis, en Chine et d'autres pays; tous les dirigeants du G20 travaillent à la correction de ces déséquilibres; au sein de la zone euro, il faut poursuivre la politique avec beaucoup plus d'énergie que par le passé, en combinant l'assainissement des finances publiques avec une politique de croissance forte axée sur l'investissement, et dans le même temps, il faut approfondir l'union économique et monétaire; ce sera le thème principal du Conseil européen de fin juin; l'UE doit aller vers davantage d'intégration financière, fiscale et économique afin d'apporter plus de stabilité à la zone euro.
