I know just how much the young people of the European Union feel concerned by discussions on Europe's future ,by the uncertainties of the economic climate, by the war and violence raging daily just beyond our borders. You are the ones who will have to live with the results of the decisions taken today and who will have to build on them in turn for the sake of your own children and grandchildren. Being European in no way means that we must give up our own nationalities.
