New European Constitution Should Offer Chance To Boost Cooperation With UN -- ANNAN
Welcoming the signature of a new Treaty on Europe's Constitution, Secretary-General Kofi Annan has voiced hope that the document will offer new opportunities to strengthen cooperation between the United Nations and the European Union (EU).
In a statement released by his spokesman late Friday, the Secretary-General said the signing in Rome by leaders of EU countries marks a "major milestone."
"This important and positive step opens new horizons for the European Union in the twenty-first century and provides a unique opportunity to preserve and strengthen democracy, peace and prosperity," he said, expressing hope that the document will bolster UN-EU collaboration in fostering peace and development.
