Barroso Blames The Netherlands 2/7/2007
6 February 2007

AMSTERDAM — José Manuel Barroso put the Netherlands under pressure for being indifferent about the EU Constitution, De Volkskrant reports. In the spring of 2005, the Netherlands and France gave the Constitution a big no.

“Once you have signed an agreement you must ratify it as well”, Barroso said to Dutch journalists in Brussels today. “And if that’s not possible, you should at least try to contribute everything you can to a solution”, he added.

The European Commission president would not comment whether he thought it was a good idea to “shrink” the Constitution to the size of a mini-agreement, as suggested earlier by the French presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy. “This is a question for the member states. They have signed the agreement, and now they have to find a solution”, Barroso said.
