This week in Helsinki during a meeting with Finnish Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen German Chancellor Angela Merkel officially assumed the presidency of the European Union.

Less than two weeks before Germany assumes the EU presidency, the country wants the ailing EU treaty back on track. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she hoped the ailing EU constitution would be put "back on track" and called on members to focus on their common interests.

"I would consider it an historical failure if we do not succeed in working out the substance of the constitutional treaty by the time the next European elections take place," Merkel said in her speech, which was meant to set out the aims of Germany's EU presidency which starts in January,'' The chancellor added that she and the German government would work "intensively" during the six-month presidency "so that such a treaty, based on our common values, can go into force."
