Address of President Van Rompuy to the 66th UN General Assembly General Debate


"The legitimate aspirations of both the Palestinian and Israeli peoples for peace, safety and statehood must be fulfilled (...)That's why I say to the leaders on both sides: The time to act is now. (...) The status quo is no option."

"The responsibility which I feel around the table of our 27 Presidents and Prime Ministers is not just related to the euro's weakest economies, nor to the Eurozone alone. No, we feel a responsibility for the world economy as such."

"The European Union takes up its responsibility. We act. With means and money. With manpower. With a sense of the global common good. With expertise in mediation."
