The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, is speaking today in Tallinn about the European Union's long-term budget and its role in the development of smaller EU member states. The live feed has ended.

The European Parliament is in the midst of reviewing the 2014-2020 financial period. A vote is expected at a plenary session in Strasbourg this month.

The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union are also in heated debates over the 2014 budget.

Schulz discussed the challenges faced by the European Union and the stumbling blocks posed by member states that continue to put national interests ahead of EU interests. He said that even Germany cannot on its own stand up to superpowers such as the US and the rising force of Asia.
