Gianni Pittella: We need to put emphasis on the people

We need to put emphasis on the people and especially those that are more vulnerable, such as the unemployed, in the framework of reforms proposed by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the Socialists and Democrats Europarliament Group Gianni Pittella said in an exclusive interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Wednesday.

According to Pittella, Europe cannot imagine that “it will be under the command of Germany”.

“We want to strengthen Europe as a whole, and not have just one country that gives the orders … It is very important to build a Europe with equal membership, and Germany must have its own role and all member states must be respected,” he underlined.
