EU leaders in Rome sign document promoting bloc's unity and strength

The heads of state and government of 27 European Union member states on Saturday signed a new declaration which reaffirmed their belief in the EU and their willingness to move forward.


The Rome Declaration, signed on the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome _ which led to the foundation of the EU _ outlined the bloc's plan for meeting the challenges it faces today.

Alongside the leaders were the president of the European Council Donald Tusk, the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker and the president of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani.

"Together, we are determined to address the challenges of a rapidly changing world and to offer to our citizens both security and new opportunities," read the Declaration, which said the EU's unprecedented challenges included conflicts, terror, increased migration, protectionism and inequality.

According to the document, the EU would be made stronger and more resilient through greater unity and solidarity among the member states.

The signatories pledged to work towards four points outlined in the Rome Agenda: security, prosperity, equality and global strength.

The Union would move towards strengthening outer borders and protecting citizens from terrorism and organized crime, while also allowing freedom of movement and creating a sustainable migration policy that respects international legislation.
