Mr Pahor stressed that the Lisbon Treaty would soon be unable to cater for the needs of future citizens and said the financial, economic and social crisis made stronger and closer cooperation at European level essential.

He also called on EU heads of state and government to adopt a programme to support young people, who are so badly hit by unemployment.
