ONDERWEG - MUNICH, GERMANY
“Our Europe is a union of stability, not a community of debt!”
On the occasion of the 80th birthday of CSU Honorary Chairman Dr Theo Waigel, the Minister President of Bavaria, Dr Markus Söder, invited me to the Europe Symposium. I was very glad to participate, alongside the former Federal President, Horst Köhler, and the Managing Director of the European Stability Mechanism, Klaus Regling.
Theo Waigel and I both stand for a strong Europe. I am grateful to him for his enormous achievements, including his commitment to our stable currency and to the cohesion of our continent. I am proud that the EPP, CDU and CSU are continuing their policy for a stable euro, sound finances and economic prosperity.
I guarantee: This is what I will continue to fight for in the future. There will be no Eurobonds or any lax handling of debt. Our Europe is a union of stability, not a community of debt!
