Yes, it is the best of times and it is the worst of times. But above all, it is the time for us in Europe to stand up for our values and be candid. I would like to pay tribute to Sweden's response to the refugee crisis. Your country has long received the highest number of people seeking protection way before the current crisis started. Your solidarity is a shining light. When a country so far north in the Union is affected so directly by events to the south, we know we are in this together. -- Vice-President Georgieva, with Stefan Löfven, Prime Minister of Sweden on "The current situation in the European Union", European Parliament, 9 March 2016
