"This Nobel Peace Prize is for all EU citizens," commented EP president Martin Schulz. "The European Union has reunified the continent through peaceful means and brought arch enemies together. Despite challenging economic conditions, the European Union is a magnet for stability, prosperity and democracy."
Mr Schulz announced that the European Parliament would be represented at the awards ceremony in Oslo along with the other EU institutions to accept the prize on behalf of the Union's 500 million citizens.
