Luxembourg’s Prime Minister, Jean-Claude Juncker reacted with optimism to his country’s vote in a press conference after the final result was announced.

After last month’s ill-tempered European Summit in Brussels Prime Minister Juncker described Europe as being in a serious crisis. Today however he was more sanguine. “After the vote in Luxembourg” he said, “while Europe is still in a crisis, we can point to a future or a horizon where there are some elements to be optimistic about. It is now up to the other states who are yet to ratify the EU constition to see if that optimism is well founded.
