(QHA) -

European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy Stefan Fule believes that given the situation in Ukraine, the European Union could consider its enlargement, according to Deutsche Welle, UNIAN reports.

"If we want to seriously change that part of Eastern Europe, which has been affected by the recent events, we have to use the most powerful policy tool that the EU has - this is enlargement. It has an unprecedented and effective stabilizing capacity," Fule told the German newspaper Die Welt in an interview.
