Emmanuel Macron said: "At a moment where our Europe is threatened by the nationalist movements emerging inside its borders, shaken by a painful Brexit and worried by global concerns that go beyond nations — the climate, digital technology, terrorism or migration — Germany and France have to take responsibility and show the way," External link

Donald Tusk said: "To the east of Germany there are hundreds of places where the European spirit of a place — genius loci — is felt as strongly as in Aachen, Paris or Berlin, and where millions of people live whose hearts beat for Europe, a Europe of mutually supportive and equal nations," External link

Angela Merkel said: “A Franco-German axis that goes around other Member States to stitch up EU business is exactly what we feared when the U.K. announced their intention to leave," he said in an emailed statement. President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker delivers a speech on January 22, 2019 in the town hall of Aachen, Germany | Ludovic Marin/AFP via Getty Images. According to Zahradil, the Aachen treaty demonstrates why the EU should not deviate from the principle of unanimity in Council decisions on foreign policy: "No other member state is going to feel comfortable giving up their veto if it's just for Paris and Berlin to take the reins". In Aachen, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker argued that critics of Franco-German cooperation should be careful what they wish for. "For many years I have seen that these common ideas, this platform that you two countries share, may well cause irritation with others. They say, 'oh, that's a bit much.' You're kind of too much of a good thing," he said. "But it would be very painful as soon as Germany and France were not of one and the same position. So we should stick to this common position because that means that the others can also forge a position together". Elysée echoes. Just like the 1963 Elysée accord , the new treaty avoids naming precise commitments and goals in most areas, and in many ways demonstrates The document says that Germany and France will "deepen their cooperation on foreign policy, defense, external and internal security and development issues, while strengthening Europe's capacity to act independently". However, the commitments to close coordination at European and international level are largely a reflection of what's already common practice between Paris and Berlin. Both countries promise to defend each other in the event of an attack — something they are already committed to as NATO members. They vow to accelerate the consolidation of the defense sector in order to "further develop Europe's military performance, coherence and credibility". "Those who forget the value of French-German reconciliation are making themselves accomplices of the crimes of the past" — French President Emmanuel Macron. Elsewhere, France commits to lobby to get Germany a permanent seat in the U.N. Security Council and the two countries agree to more regular high-level meetings of the German-French security council, and to "develop a common approach for arms export". How difficult the latter issue will be was just recently demonstrated by the Franco-German discord over arms exports to Saudi Arabia: Merkel blocked them after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Macron did not. Pressed on that example during a one-hour dialogue with German and French citizens following the treaty signing, Merkel admitted difficulties: "We thought a great deal about that, as that's about the question of how autonomous a country wants to be," she said. However, she insisted on the need for a common position on the development and export of arms: "We are running around the world selling two airplanes, the Eurofighter and the Rafale. That doesn't make sense,” External link

Danuta Hubner added: "Anything that would allow a member state not to have EU elections in a similar situation would require a revision of the treaties and the EU’s electoral law," "So we don’t think it’s feasible" External link

Alejo Vidal Quadras explica: "Este intergrupo trabajaba por el cambio democrático en Irán , los derechos de las mujeres. Y apoyaba a la resistencia iraní y, en concreto, al NCRI. Es una red enorme. Cientos de diputados y senadores participan en los actos del NCRI. En el de París de todos los años hay centenares de invitados, congresistas de EEUU , 500-600 invitados extranjeros, Pat Kennedy Ingrid Betancourt , es un tinglado enorme. Me sumé en 1999 o 2000 porque la causa me parece nobilísima, contra una de las peores dictaduras del mundo . Yo venía con un bagaje de oposición al nacionalismo y al extremismo de mis años en Cataluña. Desde entonces colaboro de forma muy activa y ahí sigo" External link

Ville Niinistö perustelee: – Mietin tarkkaan mikä olisi minulle hyvä tapa parantaa maailmaa jatkossa ja harkitsin politiikankin jättämistä Mutta tuntuu siltä, että tänä hetkenä Euroopassa demokratian kriisi ja erilaisten ääriliikkeiden nousu sekä Brexit ovat sellaisia uhkia, että tarvitaan kokeneita ja näkemyksellisiä päättäjiä ratkomaan Euroopan ongelmia ja puolustamaan ihmisoikeuksia ja demokratiaa, External link

Claudia Schmidt kritisiert: "Aus Budgetsicht offensichtlich nicht die beste Lösung ist es, dass das Europaparlament zwölf Mal im Jahr für eine Plenartagung nach Straßburg übersiedeln muss" "Leider können wir uns als Europaparlament unseren Sitz nicht aussuchen. Ich fordere die Europäische Kommission daher auf, hier noch einmal einen Anlauf zu nehmen, um im Sinne der europäischen Steuerzahler eine günstigere Lösung auf den Weg zu bringen. Ist ein Sitz für das Europaparlament nicht genug? Am Ende sind natürlich die Mitgliedstaaten gefragt, nur sie können den kostspieligen, monatlichen Pendelverkehr am Ende einstimmig ändern" External link

Claudia Schmidt sagt: "Weiteres Einsparungspotenzial sehe ich zum Beispiel bei der Gebäudepolitik der Parlamentsverwaltung und den Informationsbüros in den Mitgliedstaaten.

Doch könnte das mit den verwendeten Mitteln noch besser gelingen. Das werden wir uns im Detail ansehen" External link

Rina Ronja Kari siger: – Her går EU-kommissionen, der forhandler på vegne af medlemslandene, efter handelsaftaler som sikrer investorernes rettigheder. Det har vi set med CETA-aftalen med Canada, og med TTIP-aftalen med USA, som er under forhandling. Det medvirker til social dumping, og er i direkte modstrid med at få arbejdspladser tilbage til Danmark. Forslaget om flere af den slags aftaler lyder ret skræmmende, External link
