Vienna European Council, 11-12/12/1998

The European Council met in Vienna on 11 and 12 December 1998 to examine the major questions and challenges the EU is facing, particularly employment, growth and stability. A meeting was held with Heads of State and Government and Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the countries participating in the accession process of Central and Western Europe and of Cyprus. This European Council was mostly a summit of transition, nevertheless, all the partners agreed to endow Europe with a common defence. Moreover, the European Council expressed its gratitude to Helmut Kohl, former Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, for his great contribution to the development of the EU and decided to grant him the title of “Honorary Citizen of Europe”.
