    Verheugen: …mpossible to stop or delay enlargement

    Nicosia, Mar 8 (CNA) -- European Union enlargement Commissioner Gunter Verheugen said here today that "it is impossible and unthinkable" to stop or deliberately delay enlargement of the Union and called on both communities in Cyprus "to participate" to the EU expansion and "shoulder responsibilities of a member of the EU and enjoy the benefits."

    Speaking at the opening ceremony of a two-day international conference on "The enlargement of the EU and beyond", organized by the International European Movement, Verheugen also said that the Commission would make in October its assessment for the 10 countries which are on the list of countries to conclude accession negotiations in December 2002 "based on the fulfillment of political and economic and acquis communautaire related criteria."

    "Therefore I have to say in public that delaying tactics will not help. It is impossible and unthinkable to stop it or delay it on purpose. We cannot tell 110 million people in Eastern and Central Europe that they have to wait until a solution for a specific problem is found", he added.

    Verheugen reiterated that the EU's clear preference is that a united Cyprus joins but noted that this "is not a precondition."
