Quotes from the news wire:
On the one hand, we want to reach an agreement with which the British government can successfully campaign, in the forthcoming referendum, to remain in the European Union, on the other hand, we don't want to, and we won't, call into question the core principles of European integration. These include in particular the principle of free movement and the principle of non-discrimination between European citizens.
I know that many have doubts and concerns about whether this road will be successful, about whether Greece will have the strength to take it in the long term, and no one can brush aside these concerns, but I am firmly convinced of one thing: we would be grossly negligent, even irresponsible, if we did not at least try this road.
There's no drawing a line under the history, we can see that in the Greece debate and in other European countries. We Germans have a special responsibility to be alert, sensitive and aware of what we did during the Nazi era and about lasting damage caused in other countries. I've got tremendous sympathy for that.
