There is no guarantee we’ll find a solution to EU budget in January – Austria Chancellor

Visiting Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann said during talks with Romanian President Traian Basescu at the presidential Cotroceni Palace that there is no guarantee to finding a solution to the European Union budget in January. Faymann made the remark as part of the talks about the conclusions of the European Council meeting from Nov. 22-23, on Basescu’s request. “I am sorry we had a range of contradictory discussions in front of ourselves. I think it is a tough mission for President Herman van Rompuy to find a common solution among these very different arguments. I think we do not have the guarantee we’ll find a solution in January. I am in favor of finding a solution, a compromise, but there are very different arguments between: we need more money for investments and a cut in the amount of money; agriculture; the first and the second pillar; about Great Britain’s allowance”, Faymann said, adding that “Britain has not stepped back a single centimetre, while Austria will lose the allowance”. He said he hoped the European Council president will find a solution to this case.
