Adelina Marini @martinschulz started the news conference with a comment on David Cameron's speech, saying that it had too little to do with the EU but with domestic policy. Cameron should be cautious not to lose control over the feelings he has just unleashed.

Adelina Marini Mr #Schulz agreed with a large part of Cameron's criticism for the EU, mentioning explicitly a problem he raised many times - why do the leaders meet behind closed doors? This makes decisions anonymous and opaque, he said.
25 January 2013 10:13
Adelina Marini Yes, we need reforms. The #EU must be more transparent, more democratic, more socially just, but this will not be achieved by splitting the Union, the European Parliament chief added.

Adelina Marini #MFF The 2nd issue Schulz touched was the negotiations on the next multiannual financial framework 2014-2020 saying that Parliament will not support the budget unless the EP's demands are taken into account. He reiterated that the leaders constantly agree new tasks at every summit of theirs but refuse to provide money for them.

Adelina Marini @martinschulz said that he is not surprised by the fact that David #Cameron did not mention the European Parliament in his speech. He specified that governments report to national parliaments but when European policies are concerned the Europarliament is the appropriate institution. He invited David Cameron to address the MEPs and present his ideas there.

Adelina Marini #MFF The European Parliament chief is avoiding to point out a specific sum under which the Parliament will block the EU multiannual budget.
25 January 2013 10:30
Adelina Marini No one wants assimilation of national identity in Europe. We need the richness of sovereign states, of national identities and languages. But the EU should act intercontinentally and to tackle global challenges, Martin Schulz said.
25 January 2013 10:42
Adelina Marini When David #Cameron makes decisions in the European Council he is accountable before the British national parliament, but these decisions affect the German citizens as well, for instance. This is why the European Parliament is established, Martin Schulz explained to a series of questions of British journalists concerning Mr Cameron's speech in which he called the role of national parliaments on European level to be enhanced.
