Kommissionens formand, José Manuel Barrosos tale ved Polens ratifikation af Lissabontraktaten:
"Ladies and Gentlemen
I am delighted to be present today at the signature of Poland's instrument of ratification. President Kaczynski has today set the seal on a very important chapter for Poland, and for the European Union.
The last decade has seen two great steps for the European Union. One has been enlargement, the reunification of the continent and the forging of a common vision between 27 Member States. At the same time, we have refocused the goals we set out in our Treaties, and giving ourselves the tools we need for a more efficient, democratic and coherent Europe."
