Jan Truszczynski, Poland's chief negotiator, said in Brussels that closing the two negotiation areas "Confirmed that Poland remains decidedly on the right track and that the Polish negotiation strategy, designed to successfully complete membership negotiations by the end of the year, is feasible and realistic." EU Commissioner for Enlargement Gunter Verheugen expressed satisfaction with the agreement with Poland on the sale of farmland, one of the most controversial issues of the negotiations. "Closing negotiations with Poland on the free movement of capital is a turning point," Verheugen said. "This area, covering sensitive issues such as the purchase of land and second homes, was one of the most difficult, politically and psychologically, in the negotiations with Poland." Verheugen added that "The EU has made a great deal of effort to meet Poland's specific needs. This shows that the EU treats the sensitivity and specific concerns of individual member countries seriously." Meanwhile, Danish Ambassador to the EU Poul Christophersen, who presided over the negotiation sessions with the candidate countries, admitted that some member countries the criticized manner in which the agreement was made on the terms of selling farmland. Christophersen referred to talks conducted by Polish Prime Minister Leszek Miller at a summit in Barcelona March 15 with the leaders of the Netherlands, Germany and Britain. The overlooking of smaller EU countries in top-level negotiations drew criticism from some of these countries at a meeting of the Committee of Permanent Representatives (Ambassadors) in Brussels. According to EU diplomats, by completing talks in the two areas Poland cut short speculation that it might lag behind other leading candidate countries and fail to close the negotiations this year. Slovenia is still first among the candidate countries in terms of the largest number of closed negotiation areas, 26 of 29, ahead of Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania and Hungary (each 24), Latvia and Slovakia (each 23), Poland (22) and Malta (21). Bulgaria and Romania are at the bottom of the list, with 14 and nine areas closed respectively. They admit that they will not manage to complete negotiations this year and join the EU in 2004. Poland's representatives in the European Convention, which is debating the future of the EU, supported a strengthening of the EU through moves such as expanding the principle of making decisions by majority vote. "We want a strong Europe, a Europe building unity without blurring differences," stated Jozef Oleksy, who represents the Sejm in the Convention, in his first official statement at a Convention session. The two-day session began March 21 at the headquarters of the European Parliament in Brussels. "If you ask me, I would support expanding the rule for voting by qualified majority, but for each member country there are specific areas in which protection of fundamental national interests-cultural, moral and economic-is unusually important," said Danuta Hubner, minister for European affairs and the representative of the Polish government. "Without a doubt, we in Poland also have one or two spheres in which we feel we would need absolute guarantees that the EU will not make any major changes likely to influence society without our consent," she said. In this context, she mentioned "issues linked with morality such as abortion," and in the next breath-"culture" and "the right to our own language."
