(ANSA) - BELGRADE, OCT 6 - "We are certainly supporters of European Union enlargement," Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said upon arrival at the Granada summit, adding that "if we look at Europe competing with other regions of the world, then we would all benefit from enlargement." However, Kallas urged the candidate countries to implement the necessary reforms "as we have all done." She emphasised that by joining the European Union "our country's and people's prosperity has actually increased." "It is also in Europe's interest for these countries to implement reforms, the rule of law, democracy, and the abolition of corruption," she added. (ANSA).
