British PM Blair addresses EU Parliament in Brussels.
British Prime Minister Tony Blair addresses the European Parliament in Brussels June 23, 2005. Blair wants the EU to resume talks on its long-term budget during his country's six-month presidency of the bloc, he said on Thursday. He was setting out Britain's priorities for its presidency of the bloc, beginning on July 1, just days after the EU failed to agree on the budget, triggering an acrimonious row among the bloc's leaders.
