62 views

At the press conference at the end of the General Affairs and External Relations Council, the French Presidency welcomed the arrest of the Serbian warcrime suspect Radovan Karadzic as an illustration of the commitment of the new government in Belgrade to contribute to peace and stability in the region of the Balkans. Bernard Kouchner, French Minister for Foreign and European Affairs and President in office of the Council, said that it was a milestone in Serbia's approximation with the European Union, but added that Europe was waiting for other detentions. Javier Solana, Secretary General of the Council of the EU and High Representative for CFSP, informed the EU Ministers about his negotiations with Iran and said that he was waiting for an answer to his very concrete question. Benita Ferrero-Waldner, Member of the EC in charge of External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, said she was optimistic about the next summit with Ukraine but that internal problems between the President and the Prime Minister should be solved.
