The EU Delegation to the UN in Geneva, together with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, organised on 11 November a panel discussion concerning the EU Council Decision in support of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. The well-attended side-event took place in the margins of the 8th Review Conference of the Convention at the Palais des Nations. It provided an opportunity to present the results of four regional workshops, which the EU had sponsored in preparation of the Review Conference, and inform interested States Parties of the EU's upcoming assistance activities of which they can benefit over the next two years.
The European Commission adopted today its annual Enlargement Package. It assesses where the countries of the Western Balkans and Turkey stand in implementing key political and economic reforms, and what needs to be done to address the remaining challenges.
