  • Description

    The Six-nation European Economic Community (EEC) - the Common Market - is meeting Luxembourg to open negotiations on the applications by Britain, Eire, Denmark and Norway, to join the Market. At this opening meeting, Ministers of the four applicant States will outline their negotiating positions.

    M. Pierre Harmel, the Belgian Foreign Minister and current President of the Common Market Council of Ministers, will first set out the joint negotiating position of the six members - France, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg.

    Detailed negotiations on the British application will began on July 21 at Brussels, the headquarters of the EEC. The full-scale negotiations on the other three applications will be held on September 21 and 22.

    The most difficult problem will be the adaptation of the Common Market's agricultural financing system to the applicant countries, and reconciling currently low British prices for farm products with the higher guaranteed prices in the Community.

    Herr Walter Scheel is the Minister for West Germany and M. Maurice Schumann for France.

    M. Jean Rey, the Belgian President of the Common Market Commission in Brussels for the past three years makes his final public appearance on Tuesday (June 30). Signor Malfatti of Italy takes over his position.
