European Union receives Nobel Peace Prize
He didn’t mention that the two leaders had spent most of the summer arguing over how best to solve Europe’s economic problems. Mrs. Merkel has stuck to her line that the region has to cut back and introduce painful reforms if it is to survive the current crisis, whereas Mr. Hollande has been calling for spending by governments to encourage growth.
In his speech, Mr. Van Rompuy acknowledged that the economic crisis is causing “great hardship and putting the political bonds of our union to the test.”
But, he said, “while we must keep a sense of proportion — even such tensions don’t take us back to the darkness of the past — the test Europe is currently facing is real.”
The Nobel Peace Prize is always awarded in Oslo on Dec. 10, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel’s death in 1896. Similar ceremonies are to be held in Stockholm, the Swedish capital, for the Nobel laureates in medicine, chemistry, physics and literature.
