The head of the European Parliament, German Socialist Martin Schulz, said on Friday he felt "deeply touched" and "honoured" at the award of the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union.

In a first reaction from one of the three main EU institutions, Schulz said on Twitter: "Deeply touched honoured that the EU has won the Nobel Peace Prize. Reconciliation is what the EU is about. It can serve as inspiration."
