EU chief von der Leyen backs bloc treaty changes

European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen has said she backs treaty changes for the bloc "if need be," and wants streamlined decision-making in sensitive areas through supermajority voting.

Speaking in the European Parliament to a group of citizens the EU consulted on its future direction, von der Leyen said "the most direct way there" was by acting within the existing treaties - "or, yes, by changing the treaties if need be."
