Angela Merkel lays out vision to unify European Union in parliamentary address | DW News

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called on the European Union to unite and emerge stronger from the greatest challenge it has ever faced -- the coronavirus pandemic.
At the European Parliament in Brussels, Merkel laid out her vision for Germany's council presidency, which will be dominated by economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. She welcomed the EU commission's plan for a massive relief fund for struggling European economies. Merkel said member states would need to compromise to sign off on the joint recovery fund before next month's summer recess. It's the second time Germany has taken over the EU's council presidency with Merkel as German chancellor.

I never thought that I would say " I totally agree with Merkel´s speech."
I am a glowing European and there are many things to fix. We are way from the European dream. Which is not yet a unified one as such. My European dream is a strong united Europe that shows the world that a rich continent can also be a continent of social rights, workers rights, rule of law and not basing its profit on exploitation, especially from its own citizens.

reading into bankruptcy news of stand alone exclusive small businesses is really a very sad nasty feeling these works depended on month to month and most probably were content with what they made instead of giant forge ahead take debts loans to expand , but the way they suffered along with others is not amusing... this madness need to stop.
may world peace,pure and natural,multiple cultures cooperate
I Don’t care what her political stance is. But by showing up in public wearing a mask properly, she and other European leaders are setting up examples of what to do during a pandemic for the general public. Take some cues USA.

I summarize as 3 key points:
1, EU itself: climate change, digitization especially AI
2, Neighbor of EU: Russia, Syria, north Africa, UK now is neighbor of EU: )
3, Strategic diplomat: Responsibility to Africa, strategic relationship with China

So outside the key point is never mention US. you know this is big change.

"The global pandemic has hit people hard" also "Our priorities are, global warming, digitisation and AI" seems to me that the greatest challenge is not to put the immediate needs of europe's people first during the next 6 months of Germany's presidency.

Simone Rainieri:
As much as the EU is something amazing and avant-garde, one might think that Southern European countries are geopolitically challenged as the Mediterranean trade and economy is their biggest strength, making these countries extremely valuable for European economic growth. Therefore, one might think that the EU might aim to benefit in a do ut des manner from a stable, respectful, equal trade agreement with the Mediterranean countries. Which means all of the countries that are on the mediterranean sea.

American Occupied Germany, Japan and Italy Ok..
The best way to unite Europe will come if Europeans understand that there are not real differences between Europeans citizens, there is a need to se the other as equals, all Europeans are in this together and all should collaborate.
The objective is the stability for the further, giving priority to geopolitical wellness under financial profitability.
This is great opportunity to shape the future of Europe. Hopefully everyone will understand that the stakes are high but also if things are done right; the outcome could be greater for all.
Representatives must stay truthful to common sense and aim to humanitarian goal learning to put obstacle aside.
Hopefully the Europe will turn stronger from this and become an engine of development for the entire world.
