German Green MEP deplores EU budget
A leading German Green MEP, Rebecca Harms, says the EU's long-term budget will not promote sustainable development in Europe.
Speaking to the BBC, Ms Harms said Europe's serious debt problems would not be eased by the 2014-2020 budget, which will cut EU spending for the first time.
The European Parliament approved the budget on Tuesday, after months of tough negotiations with the member states' governments.
