European leaders signed a Reform Treaty in Lisbon on December 13 with the endorsement of representatives from all 27 EU-member states.

Prime Minister Robert Fico signed the treaty on behalf of Slovakia. He was in Portugal with Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš.

The agreement will be known as the Lisbon Treaty and will complement other basic EU documents such as the Treaty of Rome (1957) and the Maastricht Treaty (1992).

EU leaders reached an agreement on the Lisbon Treaty on October 19. The treaty replaces the European constitution. After the Lisbon Treaty is ratified by all EU member states, it is expected to come into effect in 2009.
