B. Lisbon Treaty must not be revived: Czech president
(MADRID) 25 June 2008, 14:40 CET
- The European Union's Lisbon Treaty is now obsolete and any attempt to revive it will be "disastrous" for the bloc, Czech President Vaclav Klaus said in an interview published in Spain Wednesday.
"The EU cannot ignore its own rules. The Lisbon Treaty has been roundly and democratically rejected by Ireland, and it therefore cannot come into force," he told the newspaper El Pais.
"Any attempt to ignore this fact and recourse to pressure and political manipulation to move the treaty forward would have disastrous consequences for Europe," said the fiercely eurosceptic president, whose country takes over the EU's rotating presidency in 2009
