US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton congratulated the European Union on winning the Nobel Peace Prize Friday, saying it reflected the bloc's hard work in striving for unity.

"Let me congratulate the European Union on its Nobel peace prize. Certainly it's quite remarkable to see how unified and peaceful Europe is in the 21st century and that did not happen by coincidence," Clinton said. "It happened because of the very hard work and dedication of leaders and citizens across Europe."
