Kommissionens formand, José Manuel Barroso, glæder sig over den tyske ratifikation:
"I welcome the ratification of the Treaty of Lisbon by Germany today.
After the parliamentary approval of the Treaty on 23 May 2008, the judgment of the Constitutional Court on 30 June 2009 and the subsequent debate and adoption of the national accompanying legislation, I would like to thank Germany for its European commitment and constant support of the Treaty.
With the German ratification of the Treaty of Lisbon, Europe has taken another important step towards more capacity to act, democratic accountability and influence at global level.
I once again stress the importance of completing the ratification process of the Lisbon Treaty in all Member States this autumn."
Lissabontraktaten skal ratificeres af alle 27 EU-lande, inden den kan træde i kraft. Ud over Tyskland mangler traktaten stadig at blive ratificeret af Tjekkiet, Polen og Irland, som stemmer om traktaten den 2. oktober.
