Merkel Calls For Changes in European Union Treaty; Situation in Europe "Too Unpleasant"

Well, it has indeed been very unpleasant for quite time. Now Angela Merkel said today that the situation in Europe is "so unpleasant" that it is time for a change, calling for changes in the European Union Treaty.

Reuters reports that Merkel said so in a speech today. She added that declarations of good intent are no longer good enough and "that genuine structural reforms are needed that can be checked".

Merkel added that the political community "will not survive if it is not capable of changing".

She said countries' responsibilities cannot end at their frontiersl reforms are needed quickly because the "rest of the world is not waiting for Europe.".
