  • [01] Karamanlis: Deal clinched in Brussels an 'important step for EU'

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA - A. Panagopoulos) Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Saturday said the agreement reached by EU leaders on a Constitutional Treaty for the Community was an important step for the European Union.

    In an early morning press conference, after the leaders of the 27 EU member-states had negotiated hard and long into the night, Karamanlis stressed that the European Council had endorsed a mandate to renegotiate the treaty and convene an Intergovernmental Conference, which would soon be done by the Portuguese presidency of the EU.

    According to the prime minister, the efforts of all sides had been vindicated, especially of the German presidency that had worked right up to the last minute to find a solution to the very major problems that had arisen.

    The spirit of united Europe had emerged a winner, in spite of the scepticism put forward by many, the Greek prime minister added, noting that compromises were necessary and often useful in the EU.
