Denmark's Prime Minister Fogh Rasmussen said the EU should boost support and aid for Bulgaria and Romania so that they could prepare for membership in 2007. He warned the countries from the first wave of enlargement against "gambling away" the 2004 entry. According to Rasmussen, the negotiations at the EU Copenhagen summit that starts on Thursday will be hard. However, the Danish prime minister said he is optimistic about the talks and thought the union will let in ten new members in 2004. Ramussen pointed out that the possible accession of Turkey would be "much more of a challenge" than the accession of ten countries at once.
