Statement of Foreign Minister on Deputies’ approval of Lisbon Treaty
18.02.2009 / 19:02
The approval of the Lisbon Treaty by a substantial majority of the Chamber of Deputies represents a further significant step towards deepening European integration.
It is a step towards boosting Europe´s unity and ability to act and as such I welcome it. The recent crisis has shown us the importance of speaking with one voice.
This is why all the Members of Parliament who raised their hands for the Lisbon Treaty today, whether they are supporters of the coalition parties or the opposition, deserve my warmest thanks.
