George A. Panpandreou

[26/01/2010 13:30:00] While emphasising the uniqueness of our common institutions and practices, the Prime Minister of Greece said that they neither could nor should be taken for granted. Media concentration, the need for greater global awareness of environmental issues and the use of diversity to create new bonds of solidarity: these are all challenges facing democracy. Greater protection of the rights of minorities and an end to conflicts are also vital to achieving a more integrated Europe. 'The world needs more Europe today, not less', he concluded.
