    [04] Greek PM: Enlargement a turning point for both the EU and Europe

    12/05/2003 23:37:12

    The accession of 10 new member-states into the European Union was a historic turning point in the development of both the Community and Europe as a whole, Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis and current president of the European Council told a seminar on ''Greece, the EU and the future of Europe'' organised by PASOK at Athens' Old Parliament on Monday.

    The Greek premier also stressed that Europe now needed a new Constitutional framework and that the Greek EU presidency intended to propose discussion of a draft European Constitution that would be prepared by the Convention for the Future of Europe at the June summit under the Greek EU presidency in Thessaloniki.

    Through the recent signing of accession treaties, Europe had knocked down the last remaining vestiges of the wall that had once divided the European continent, creating mechanisms for rallying together and development that offered new opportunities and capabilities to its member-states, Simitis said.

    He described enlargement as ''an inevitable undertaking'' that was inextricably linked with the course toward the future, as well as an ''ambitious attempt'' to effect a transition from an incomplete state structure to a more complete one.

    When EU leaders meet in Thessaloniki in June, he added, they will hold talks based on the Convention's proposals for a draft European Constitution.

    He stressed that this would be more than a series of amendments or additions to the various EU treaties, which were no longer comprehensible to the general public, but a new text that would redraw the basic rules and guidelines for the Union.
