||Soundbite by Andris Piebalgs (in ENGLISH): But I believe that Europe cuts are very important feature. It is socially oriented, especially now, when we have a discussion about post-2015 development agenda, post-MDG agenda, climate change agenda, and a lot of international important issues. I believe that is very important to have regular dialogue on mutually interesting issues between EU Member States and Nicaragua, because you have your own ties, you have your own partners, and at the end of the day, in 2015 we need a grievous consensus. And second aspect of the regional integration that you mentioned (3 shots)
