EU Approves Revocation of “Common Position” towards Cuba

BRUSSELS – The council of ministers of the European Union approved on Tuesday the repeal of the restrictive “Common Position” imposed on Cuba in 1996, in a decision that will take effect with the signing of a dialogue and cooperation agreement scheduled for Dec. 12, European sources told EFE.

The EU foreign policy representative and the Cuban foreign minister will sign the agreement in Brussels to coincide with the holding of a council of foreign ministers of the Union.

The EU countries, represented on this occasion by their finance and economic ministers’ meeting in Brussels, backed the decision already taken at ambassadorial level last week to sign the first bilateral agreement with Cuba.

The agreement will be submitted to the European parliament for approval, the EU council said.

The ministers also confirmed the repeal of the “Common Position” on Cuba, adopted by the EU in 1996 at the request of the Spanish government, then chaired by conservative Jose Maria Aznar.
