    Mr. Papandreou stated that "on general terms the revision ensures more decisive input on behalf of the EU, with the concurrent safeguard that the viable national rights will not be harmed, since each member-state will be able to refer to this provision in order to exercise its veto power if it should deem that its national interests are seriously harmed."

    However, the alternate FM added that in regards to the defense sector, "the results are more moderate than we wished for since there is severe resistance on behalf of many member-states concerning the Western European Union's gradual integration into the Community."

    At the same time, he added, "a fight is given on the issue of protecting the EU's external borders."

    The alternate FM also stated that the most critical chapter of this revision is that of the institutional reforms in light of the expansion, adding that Greece will stay firm on its position regarding institutional equality among the member-states.

    "We will insist to the end on maintaining one commissioner for each member-state, as well as the maintenance of a "voice" of the smaller member-states in the Council, in spite of the pressures exerted by the stronger and wealthier member-states for increasing their influence within the Council."
