E-001376/2017(ASW)
Answer given by President Juncker on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-001376/2017

As already explained by the Prodi Commission in its answer to the written question P-000524/2004, and as recalled lately by this Commission, in its answer to the Written Question E-011776/2015, it is not the role of the Commission to express a position on questions of internal organisation related to the constitutional arrangements in the Member States.

Concerning certain scenarios such as the separation of one part of a Member State or the creation of a new State, these would not be neutral as regards the EU Treaties.

The Commission recalls that the process for the accession of States to the European Union must be fully in line with the rules and procedures foreseen by the Treaties.
