EU Welcomes the Signature of the Lisbon Treaty

November 7, 2009 at 8:00 am

Following today’s signature of the Lisbon Treaty by Czech President Vaclav Klaus, European Commission President José Manuel Barroso said: “It’s now absolutely clear that the Lisbon Treaty will enter into force soon…I want to pay tribute to all those who have worked hard in the 27 EU Member States to make the Lisbon Treaty a reality. The road is now open for the consultations on the appointment of the President of the European Council and Vice President of the European Commission/High Representative to begin. This will in turn allow me to start the process of nominating the new Commission.”

EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy Javier Solana said: “I am very pleased that President Vaclav Klaus has signed the Lisbon Treaty today. All obstacles have now been lifted for the prompt entry into force of a treaty that will open a new era for the European Union. The Lisbon Treaty will enable us to work in a much more coherent and efficient way and give us a stronger voice on the international scene.”
