"Mr President, I agree with Mrs Lehtomäki that enlargement has to continue as an open process because, in defiance of many warnings and fears, all previous enlargements have turned out to be a big success for the EU as a whole. It has been, and will continue to be, a win-win process for all the players involved. Mr Stubb was right to remind us that every new round of enlargement has forced the EU, in a most positive way, to deepen its internal preparedness through new reforms. The message today is that the Nice basis is no longer sufficient for a new enlargement round. There is no alternative to the adoption of the Constitutional Treaty and applying it in practice. However, the integration capacity is not to be seen as an additional criterion for the new applicants. It should be seen as an internal commitment to make maximum efforts to achieve the necessary new quality of our cohesion. The EU should not send the wrong signal that we will close our doors to new applicants. Every European nation is entitled to join the EU and is entitled to be treated not as a guest, but as a potential and welcome member of this ever-growing family. Therefore, we need to show maximum openness to the interested nations, including Mr Milinkevich’s home country. Finally, enlargement is not only about the budgets and institutions. There is a huge undercurrent of popular opinions, fears and prejudices. This is popular psychology into which the Constitutional Treaty has tumbled. Therefore, we need openly to address these needs and fears by stimulating frank and friendly debate between old and new Member States on our different and historic cultural experiences. My experience is that these fears and prejudices are actually very similar, and that most of them prove to be unfounded. There is a huge reserve of popular support for the Constitutional Treaty."@et5

"Hr. formand! Jeg er enig med hr. Lehtomäki i, at udvidelsen er nødt til at fortsætte som en åben proces, eftersom alle tidligere udvidelser, på trods af mange advarsler og stor frygt, har vist sig at være en stor succes for hele EU. Det har været og vil fortsat være en proces med lutter vindere blandt alle de involverede. Hr. Stubb gjorde ret i at minde os om, at hver ny udvidelsesrunde på en yderst positiv måde har tvunget EU til at styrke sit indre beredskab gennem nye reformer. Budskabet i dag er, at Nice ikke længere er grundlag nok for en ny udvidelsesrunde. Der er ikke noget alternativ til at vedtage forfatningstraktaten og gennemføre den i praksis. Integrationskapaciteten må imidlertid ikke ses som endnu et kriterium for nye ansøgere. Den skal ses som et internt tilsagn om at yde den størst mulige indsats for at opnå den nødvendige nye kvalitet i samhørigheden. EU må ikke sende det forkerte signal om, at vi vil lukke dørene for nye ansøgere. Alle europæiske nationer har ret til at komme med i EU og har ret til at blive behandlet ikke som vores gæst, men som et potentielt og velkomment medlem af vores stadigt voksende familie. Derfor er vi nødt til at udvise maksimal åbenhed over for de interesserede nationer, herunder hr. Milinkevichs hjemland. Slutteligt, udvidelse handler ikke kun om budgetter og institutioner. Der findes en kæmpe understrøm af holdninger, bekymringer og fordomme i befolkningen. Det er den populærpsykologi, som forfatningstraktaten er havnet midt i. Derfor er vi nødt til åbent at tage hånd om disse behov og bekymringer ved at anspore til en åben og venskabelig debat mellem gamle og nye medlemsstater om vores forskellige og historiske kulturelle erfaringer. Min erfaring er, at disse bekymringer og fordomme faktisk er meget ens, og at de fleste af dem viser sig at være ubegrundede. Der er en enorm støtte for forfatningstraktaten i befolkningen."@da2

"Arvoisa puhemies, olen neuvoston puheenjohtajan Lehtomäen kanssa samaa mieltä siitä, että laajentumisen on jatkuttava avoimena prosessina, koska kaikki aiemmat laajentumiset ovat osoittautuneet monia varoituksia ja pelkoja uhmaten suureksi menestykseksi koko EU:lle. Laajentuminen on ollut ja on vastedeskin prosessi, jossa kaikki osapuolet ovat voittajia. Jäsen Stubb muistutti meitä aivan oikein siitä, että jokainen uusi laajentumiskierros on pakottanut EU:n mitä myönteisimmällä tavalla syventämään sisäistä valmiuttaan uudistusten kautta. Tänään viesti on se, ettei Nizzan sopimus ole enää riittävä perusta uudelle laajentumiskierrokselle. Meillä ei ole muuta vaihtoehtoa kuin hyväksyä perustuslaillinen sopimus ja soveltaa sitä käytännössä. Integraatiovalmiutta ei kuitenkaan pidä nähdä uusiin hakijoihin sovellettavana lisäkriteerinä. Se pitäisi nähdä sisäisenä sitoumuksena siihen, että teemme kaiken mahdollisen saadaksemme yhteenkuuluvuuteemme tarpeellisia uusia laatunäkökohtia. EU:n ei pidä lähettää vääränlaista viestiä sulkemalla ovemme uusilta hakijoilta. Jokaisella Euroopan kansakunnalla on oikeus liittyä EU:hun niin, ettei sitä kohdella vieraana vaan potentiaalisena ja tervetulleena jäsenenä tässä alati kasvavassa perheessämme. Meidän on siis oltava mahdollisimman avoimia jäsenyydestä kiinnostuneiden maiden – myös Milinkevitšin kotimaan – suhteen. Lopuksi haluan todeta, ettei laajentuminen koske ainoastaan talousarvioita ja toimielimiä. Siinä piilee suunnaton määrä kansan näkemyksiä, pelkoja ja ennakkoluuloja. Perustuslaillinen sopimus on juuri törmännyt tällaiseen kansanomaiseen ajatteluun. Meidän onkin avoimesti käsiteltävä näitä tarpeita ja pelkoja innostamalla vanhoja ja uusia jäsenvaltioita käymään avointa ja ystävällismielistä keskustelua erilaisista historiallisista kulttuurikokemuksistamme. Oman kokemukseni mukaan tällaiset pelot ja ennakkoluulot ovat itse asiassa kovin samansuuntaisia, ja suurin osa niistä osoittautuu aiheettomiksi. Perustuslaillisella sopimuksella on suunnattoman suuri kannatusreservi kansan keskuudessa."@fi7

"Mijnheer de Voorzitter, ik ben het met mevrouw Lehtomäki eens dat uitbreiding als een open proces moet doorgaan, omdat, ondanks veel waarschuwingen en angstgevoelens, alle voorgaande uitbreidingen een groot succes zijn gebleken te zijn voor heel de EU. Zowel in het verleden als in de toekomst is dit een win-winproces voor alle betrokken partijen. De heer Stubb heeft ons er terecht aan herinnerd dat elke nieuwe uitbreidingsronde de EU op een zeer positieve manier heeft gedwongen tot nieuwe hervormingen om intern beter toegerust te zijn. De boodschap van vandaag is dat de Nice-basis niet langer toereikend is voor een nieuwe uitbreidingsronde. Er is geen alternatief voor de uitvaardiging en de toepassing van het Grondwettelijk Verdrag. Het integratievermogen mag echter niet worden gezien als een extra criterium voor nieuwe aanvragers. Het moet worden gezien als een interne verbintenis om met maximale inspanningen de noodzakelijke nieuwe kwaliteit van onze cohesie te bereiken. De EU moet niet het verkeerde signaal afgeven dat wij onze deuren sluiten voor nieuwe aanvragen. Elke Europese natie heeft recht op toetreding tot de EU en heeft eveneens het recht om niet als gast te worden behandeld, maar als een potentieel en welkom lid van deze steeds groter wordende familie. Daarom moeten wij een maximale openheid tonen tegenover de landen die zijn geïnteresseerd, inclusief het thuisland van de heer Milinkevitsj. Tot slot draait het bij uitbreiding niet alleen om de begrotingen en instellingen. Er is tevens een grote onderstroom van algemene opinies, angstgevoelens en vooroordelen. In deze populaire psychologie is het Grondwettelijk Verdrag terecht gekomen. Daarom moeten we deze behoeften en angstgevoelens openlijk aanpakken door eerlijke en vriendelijke debatten te stimuleren tussen oude en nieuwe lidstaten, over onze verschillende en historisch-culturele ervaringen. Het is mijn ervaring dat deze angstgevoelens en vooroordelen in feite erg op elkaar lijken, en dat de meeste hiervan ongegrond blijken te zijn. Er bestaat een grote reserve aan algemene steun voor het Grondwettelijk Verdrag."@nl3

"Herr talman! Jag håller med Paula Lehtomäki om att utvidgningen måste fortsätta som en öppen process eftersom alla tidigare utvidgningar trots många varningar och farhågor har visat sig bli en stor framgång för EU som helhet. Det har varit, och kommer att fortsätta att vara, en process som gynnar alla inblandade aktörer. Alexander Stubb gjorde rätt i att påminna oss om att varje ny utvidgningsomgång på ett mycket positivt sätt har tvingat EU att förbättra sin inre förberedelse genom nya reformer. Budskapet i dag är att Nicefördraget inte längre räcker för den nya utvidgningsomgången. Det finns inget alternativ till att anta konstitutionsfördraget och tillämpa det i praktiken. Emellertid ska integrationskapaciteten inte ses som ytterligare ett kriterium för de nya ansökarländerna. Den bör ses som ett inre åtagande att göra maximala insatser för att uppnå den nödvändiga förbättringen i vår sammanhållning. EU bör inte felaktigt sända ut signalen att vi kommer att stänga våra dörrar för nya ansökarländer. Alla länder i Europa har rätt att gå med i EU och att inte behandlas som gäster utan som potentiella och välkomna medlemmar i denna ständigt växande familj. Därför måste vi visa maximal öppenhet för de intresserade länderna, inklusive Alexander Milinkevitjs hemland. Slutligen handlar inte utvidgningen bara om budgeterna och institutionerna. Det finns en enorm underström av folkopinion och människors farhågor och fördomar. Allmänheten har blivit medveten om konstitutionsfördraget. Därför behöver vi öppet ta itu med dessa behov och farhågor genom att stimulera en uppriktig och vänskaplig debatt mellan gamla och nya medlemsstater om våra olika och historiska kulturella erfarenheter. Min erfarenhet är att dessa farhågor och fördomar faktiskt i stor utsträckning liknar varandra och att de flesta av dem visar sig vara ogrundade. Det finns en enorm reserv av folkligt stöd för konstitutionsfördraget."@sv21

"Κύριε Πρόεδρε, συμφωνώ με την κ. Lehtomäki ότι η διεύρυνση πρέπει να συνεχίσει ως μια ανοικτή διαδικασία διότι, παρά το πλήθος των προειδοποιήσεων και των φόβων, όλες οι προηγούμενες διευρύνσεις αποδείχθηκαν εξαιρετικά επιτυχημένες για την ΕΕ συνολικά. Η διεύρυνση υπήρξε και θα συνεχίσει να είναι μια διαδικασία επωφελής για όλους τους συμμετέχοντες. Ο κ. Stubb ορθώς μας υπενθύμισε ότι κάθε νέος γύρος διεύρυνσης υποχρέωνε την ΕΕ, με πολύ θετικό τρόπο, να εμβαθύνει την εσωτερική της ετοιμότητα μέσω νέων μεταρρυθμίσεων. Το μήνυμα σήμερα είναι ότι η βάση που προσφέρει η Συνθήκη της Νίκαιας δεν είναι πλέον αρκετή για έναν νέο γύρο διεύρυνσης. Η μόνη διαθέσιμη επιλογή είναι η έγκριση της Συνταγματικής Συνθήκης και η εφαρμογή της στην πράξη. Ωστόσο, η ικανότητα ένταξης δεν πρέπει να θεωρείται πρόσθετο κριτήριο για τις νέες υποψήφιες χώρες. Πρέπει να αντιμετωπίζεται ως μια εσωτερική δέσμευση προκειμένου να καταβάλουμε το μέγιστο των προσπαθειών μας για να επιτύχουμε την αναγκαία νέα ποιότητα της συνοχής μας. Η ΕΕ δεν πρέπει να στέλνει το εσφαλμένο μήνυμα ότι θα κλείσουμε τις πόρτες μας σε νέες υποψηφιότητες. Όλα τα ευρωπαϊκά κράτη έχουν δικαίωμα να ενταχθούν στην ΕΕ και να αντιμετωπίζονται όχι ως επισκέπτες, αλλά ως δυνητικά και ευπρόσδεκτα μέλη αυτής της διαρκώς διευρυνόμενης οικογένειας. Συνεπώς, πρέπει να είμαστε στον μέγιστο βαθμό ανοικτοί έναντι των ενδιαφερομένων κρατών, περιλαμβανομένης της πατρίδας του κ. Milinkevich. Τέλος, η διεύρυνση δεν αφορά αποκλειστικά τον προϋπολογισμό και τα θεσμικά όργανα. Υπάρχει ένα τεράστιο πλέγμα απόψεων της κοινής γνώμης, φόβων και προκαταλήψεων. Η Συνταγματική Συνθήκη έχει προσκρούσει στην ψυχολογία του πλήθους. Πρέπει, λοιπόν, να αντιμετωπίσουμε ανοικτά αυτές τις ανάγκες και τους φόβους προωθώντας ειλικρινή και φιλικό διάλογο μεταξύ των παλαιών και των νέων κρατών μελών σχετικά με τις διαφορετικές και ιστορικές πολιτισμικές εμπειρίες μας. Η πείρα με διδάσκει ότι αυτοί οι φόβοι και οι προκαταλήψεις στην πραγματικότητα μοιάζουν πάρα πολύ μεταξύ τους, ενώ στην πλειονότητά τους αποδεικνύονται αβάσιμοι. Υπάρχουν τεράστια αποθέματα λαϊκής στήριξης για τη Συνταγματική Συνθήκη."@el10

"Herr Präsident! Ich teile die Auffassung von Frau Lehtomäki, dass die Erweiterung als offener Prozess fortgesetzt werden muss, weil sich alle bisherigen Erweiterungen zahlreichen Warnungen und Befürchtungen zum Trotz als großer Erfolg für die EU als Ganzes erwiesen haben. Die Erweiterung ist und wird ein Prozess bleiben, bei dem alle beteiligten Akteure nur gewinnen können. Herr Stubb hat uns zu Recht daran erinnert, dass die EU durch jede neue Erweiterungsrunde in einem sehr positiven Sinne dazu gezwungen wurde, sich intern mit neuen Reformen darauf vorzubereiten. Die heutige Botschaft lautet, dass die Grundlage von Nizza für eine neue Erweiterungsrunde nicht mehr ausreicht. Es gibt keine Alternative zur Verabschiedung und praktischen Anwendung des Verfassungsvertrags. Doch die Integrationsfähigkeit darf nicht als zusätzliches Kriterium für die neuen Bewerber angesehen werden. Sie sollte als interne Verpflichtung betrachtet werden, die größtmöglichen Anstrengungen zu unternehmen, um die erforderliche neue Qualität unseres Zusammenhalts zu erreichen. Die EU sollte nicht das falsche Signal senden, dass wir unsere Türen für neue Bewerber schließen werden. Jede europäische Nation hat das Recht auf einen Beitritt zur EU und kann verlangen, nicht als Gast, sondern als potenzielles und willkommenes Mitglied dieser weiter wachsenden Familie behandelt zu werden. Wir sollten daher den interessierten Nationen gegenüber die größtmögliche Offenheit an den Tag legen, dies gilt auch für das Heimatland von Herrn Milinkewitsch. Bei der Erweiterung geht es nicht nur um den Haushalt und um die Institutionen. Unterschwellig sind unzählige weit verbreitete Ansichten, Befürchtungen und Vorurteile vorhanden. Man kann fast sagen, dass der Verfassungsvertrag zu einem psychologischen Problem geworden ist. Deshalb müssen wir diese Bedürfnisse und Befürchtungen offen ansprechen, indem wir eine offene und positive Debatte zwischen alten und neuen Mitgliedstaaten über unsere unterschiedlichen und historisch-kulturellen Erfahrungen anregen. Meine Erfahrung ist, dass diese Befürchtungen und Vorurteile tatsächlich ziemlich identisch sind und dass die meisten von ihnen sich als unbegründet erweisen. In der Öffentlichkeit gibt es ein enormes Unterstützungspotenzial für den Verfassungsvertrag."@de9

"Señor Presidente, estoy de acuerdo con la señora Lehtomäki en que la ampliación tiene que continuar con un proceso abierto porque, contrariamente a las numerosas advertencias y temores, todas las ampliaciones anteriores han resultado ser un gran éxito para la UE en su conjunto. Ha sido, y seguirá siendo, un proceso en el que todas las partes implicadas ganan. El señor Stubb nos ha recordado con acierto que cada nueva ronda de ampliaciones ha obligado a la UE, en un sentido positivo, a profundizar en su capacidad de preparación interna mediante nuevas reformas. El mensaje de hoy es que la base de Niza ya no sirve para una nueva ronda de la ampliación. No existe alternativa a la aprobación del Tratado constitucional y a su aplicación en la práctica. Sin embargo, la capacidad de integración no debe considerarse un criterio adicional para los nuevos solicitantes. Debería verse como un compromiso interno para hacer los máximos esfuerzos a fin de lograr la nueva calidad necesaria de nuestra cohesión. La UE no debería enviar la señal equivocada de que cerraremos nuestras puertas a nuevos solicitantes. Cualquier nación europea tiene derecho a entrar en la UE y tiene derecho a ser tratada no como invitado, sino como miembro potencial al que hay que dar la bienvenida a esta familia que crece y crece. Por tanto, tenemos que mostrar la máxima apertura a las naciones interesadas, incluido el país del señor Milinkevich. Por último, la ampliación no solo es una cuestión de presupuestos e instituciones. Existe un gran trasfondo de opiniones, temores y prejuicios populares. Esta es la psicología popular en la que ha caído el Tratado Constitucional. Por tanto, tenemos que abordar abiertamente estas necesidades y temores, estimulando un debate franco y amistoso entre antiguos y nuevos Estados miembros sobre nuestras diferentes experiencias históricas y culturales. Mi experiencia es que estos temores y prejuicios son en realidad muy similares y que la mayoría de ellos ha demostrado no tener fundamento. Los ciudadanos se muestran muy reservados a la hora de apoyar el Tratado constitucional."@es20

"Senhor Presidente, concordo com a Senhora Ministra Lehtomäki quando diz que o alargamento tem de prosseguir como um processo aberto porque, contrariando muitos avisos e temores, todos os alargamentos precedentes acabaram por ser um grande êxito para a UE como um todo. Tem sido, e vai continuar a ser, um processo em que todos os actores envolvidos são vencedores. O senhor deputado Stubb tinha razão em lembrar-nos de que cada nova ronda de alargamentos obrigou a UE, de forma muito positiva, a aprofundar o seu estado de preparação interno através de novas reformas. A mensagem de hoje é que a base de Nice deixou de ser suficiente para uma nova ronda de alargamentos. Não existe qualquer alternativa à adopção do Tratado Constitucional e à sua aplicação na prática. Não se deve, contudo, encarar a capacidade de integração como um critério adicional para os países candidatos. Deve-se encarar como um empenhamento interno na realização de todos os esforços possíveis para alcançar a nova qualidade necessária da nossa coesão. A UE não deve enviar o sinal erróneo de que vamos encerrar as nossas portas a novos candidatos. Qualquer nação europeia tem o direito de aderir à UE e tem o direito de ser tratada, não como um convidado, mas como um membro potencial e bem-vindo desta família sempre em crescimento. Consequentemente, temos de mostrar a máxima abertura às nações interessadas, incluindo o país de origem do Sr. Milinkevich. Por último, o alargamento não tem a ver apenas com orçamentos e instituições. Existe uma enorme corrente subterrânea de opiniões, temores e preconceitos populares. Isso é uma psicologia popular em que caiu o Tratado Constitucional. Por isso, temos de abordar abertamente essas necessidades e temores, estimulando um debate franco e amistoso entre antigos e novos Estados-Membros sobre as nossas diferentes experiências culturais e históricas. Diz-me a minha experiência que esses temores e preconceitos são efectivamente muito semelhantes e está provado que a maior parte deles são infundados. Há uma imensa reserva de apoio popular ao Tratado Constitucional."@pt17

"Signor Presidente, concordo con il Ministro Lehtomäki che l’allargamento deve proseguire come processo aperto, perché, a dispetto di molti moniti e timori, tutti gli allargamenti precedenti si sono rivelati un grande successo per l’Unione nel suo insieme. E’ stato e continuerà a essere un processo favorevole a tutti i soggetti coinvolti. L’onorevole Stubb ha ragione a ricordarci che ogni nuovo allargamento ha imposto all’Unione, in modo assolutamente positivo, di approfondire la sua preparazione interna tramite nuove riforme. Il messaggio di oggi è che la base di Nizza non è più sufficiente per un nuovo allargamento. Non vi sono alternative, se non l’adozione del Trattato costituzionale e la sua applicazione pratica. Tuttavia, la capacità di integrazione non deve essere considerata come un criterio aggiuntivo per i nuovi candidati. Deve essere considerata come un impegno interno a compiere il massimo sforzo per ottenere la necessaria nuova qualità della nostra coesione. L’Unione non deve trasmettere il messaggio sbagliato che chiuderemo la porta ai nuovi candidati. Ogni nazione europea ha diritto di aderire all’Unione e ha diritto di essere trattata non come un ospite ma come un potenziale e gradito membro di questa famiglia che continua a crescere. Dobbiamo quindi mostrare la massima apertura verso le nazioni interessate, compreso il paese natale di Aliaksandr Milinkievitch. Infine, l’allargamento non riguarda solo i bilanci e le Istituzioni. Esiste un vasto sottofondo di opinioni, timori e pregiudizi popolari. E’ la psicologia popolare in cui è inciampato il Trattato costituzionale. Dobbiamo quindi affrontare apertamente queste esigenze e questi timori, incoraggiando un dibattito franco e amichevole tra vecchi e nuovi Stati membri sulle nostre diverse esperienze storiche e culturali. La mia esperienza è che questi timori e pregiudizi in realtà sono molto simili e in gran parte si rivelano infondati. Esiste un’enorme riserva di sostegno popolare per il Trattato costituzionale."@it12

"Monsieur le Président, je suis d’accord avec Mme Lehtomäki sur le fait que l’élargissement doit continuer à être un processus ouvert, car, malgré de nombreux avertissements et craintes, tous les élargissements précédents se sont avérés être un grand succès pour l’UE dans son ensemble. Cela a été, et continuera d’être, un processus bénéfique pour toutes les parties impliquées. M. Stubb a bien fait de nous rappeler que chaque nouvel élargissement a forcé l’UE, de manière très positive, à approfondir sa capacité de réaction interne par de nouvelles réformes. Le message aujourd’hui est que la base de Nice n’est plus suffisante pour un nouveau cycle d’élargissement. Il n’y a pas d’autre solution que l’adoption du traité constitutionnel et sa mise en pratique. Cependant, la capacité d’intégration ne doit pas être considérée comme un critère supplémentaire pour les nouveaux candidats. Elle doit être vue comme un engagement interne à faire un maximum d’efforts pour atteindre la nouvelle qualité nécessaire de notre cohésion. L’UE ne doit pas envoyer le mauvais signal que nos portes seront fermées aux nouveaux candidats. Chaque nation européenne a le droit de rejoindre l’UE et le droit d’être traitée non pas comme un invité, mais comme un membre potentiel et bienvenu de cette famille sans cesse croissante. Nous devons donc montrer une transparence maximum aux nations intéressées, y compris au pays de M. Milinkevitch. Enfin, l’élargissement ne concerne pas seulement les budgets et les institutions. Il existe un important courant sous-jacent d’opinions, de craintes et de préjugés populaires. C’est la psychologie populaire dans laquelle le traité constitutionnel est tombé. Nous devons donc répondre ouvertement à ces besoins et à ces craintes en stimulant un débat franc et amical entre les vieux et les nouveaux États membres sur nos expériences culturelles différentes et historiques. Je sais par expérience que ces craintes et ces préjugés sont en fait très semblables, et que la plupart d’entre eux s’avèrent être non fondés. Il existe une grande réserve de soutien populaire au traité constitutionnel."@fr8
