  • [01] Declaration by Jacques Santer, President of the European Commission, and Monika Wulf-Mathies, European Commissioner for Regional Policy, on the Northern Ireland Political Agreement

    "The European Commission warmly welcomes the majority vote in favour of the Belfast Agreement in the Referenda held in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The European Union has consistently supported the British and Irish Governments and the political leaders and the people in Northern Ireland and Ireland in their search for a stable and democratic agreement. We believe this Agreement offers the best basis for building a better life for future generations. The European Union will continue to play its part in helping to promote stability and opportunity as we have through various means like the Special Support Programme for Peace and Reconciliation since 1995 and our contributions to the International Fund for Ireland since 1989. The history of the European Union is the story of the reconciliation of peoples who had been enemies for centuries. As Northern Ireland seeks a better way forward, the European Union stands ready to help further progress and support all groups in society."

    [02] 24 pays, 1.600 universités, 200.000 étudiants participeront en 1998/99 au programme Erasmus de l'Union européenne

    Une participation sans précédent du milieu universitaire européen et l'ouverture du programme à six nouveaux pays, dont cinq pays d'Europe centrale et orientale, marqueront l'année académique 1998/99 d'Erasmus, le volet "Enseignement Supérieur" du programme Socrates en faveur de l'éducation en Europe. Le succès d'Erasmus a été confirmé cette année par l'approbation, par la Commission européenne, de 1.627 contrats institutionnels, les documents exposant, pour chaque établissement participant, la stratégie de coopération européenne ainsi que les activités envisagées pour l'année 1998/99.

    [03] EU signs Partnership and Cooperation Agreement with Turkmenistan

    The European Union (EU) will sign a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) with Turkmenistan today in the margins of the General Affairs Council. The PCA introduces the most-favoured-nation principle for bilateral commercial relations and includes provisions on establishing and operating companies, protecting intellectual property rights, services as well as legal and judicial cooperation. It serves not only the purpose of boosting bilateral trade and investment but also establishes a clear framework for cooperation and political dialogue in a wide range of areas. "The Agreement will help us to meet our common objective of supporting Turkmenistan's independence and sovereignty, reinforcing its efforts to consolidate democracy and promoting the transition to a market economy", commented Foreign Affairs Commissioner Hans van den Broek. Since 1991 the EU has allocated more than ECU 30 million through its technical assistance programme Tacis in support of the transition process in Turkmenistan. The country participates also in the Tacis "Interstate programme" and will benefit from multiple transport and energy links, which are to be supported under the TRACECA (Transport Corridor Europe-Caucasus-Central Asia) and INOGATE programme (Interstate Oil and Gas to Europe).
