  • [01] Greece paves the way for region's countries towards EU, prime minister says

    Through systematic efforts in recent years, Greece is a shining example and is paving the way for other countries in the region as they aspire towards becoming members of the European Union, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis said on Monday, ahead of Europe Day celebrated on May 9.

    "Twenty-five years since it joined the European family, Greece possesses the experience, plays a part and has a say in European developments. We are actively participating in European integration processes. We are developing initiatives and playing a leading role in developments focusing on our region," Karamanlis said.

    "The recent enlargement achieved a historic reunion of our Continent and definitely strengthened Europe. Today, the European Union represents roughly 450 million citizens and a unique mosaic of peoples, which constitutes its strength. This strength gives Europe a greater voice on the international stage," he continued.

    Looking forward, the objective is "to focus our efforts in bringing Europe closer to citizens; to address the concerns and problems of European citizens effectively; to work together with citizens in building a Europe they envision; to restore Europeans' trust in Europe," he concluded.

    Europe Day marks the anniversary of May 9, 1950, when the first move was made towards creating what is now known as the European Union, when French politician Robert Schuman presented his proposal on the creation of an organised, prosperous and peaceful Europe.
