The Euro-Mediterranean Association Agreement is a network of individual agreements between the EU and each of the Mediterranean partners under the Barcelona Declaration. They define the strategic areas of cooperation in association policy and set priorities for carrying out activities essential to achieving the objectives of the Barcelona Declaration. Cyprus, Malta and Turkey, all of which are eligible for future EU membership, are subject to previous association agreements with trade agreements (customs union). The Treaty of Amsterdam is the result of the intergovernmental conference launched at the European Council in Turin on 29 March 1996. It was adopted at the European Council in Amsterdam on 16 and 17 June 1997 and signed on 2 October 1997 by the foreign ministers of the 15 Member States. It came into force on 1 May 1999 (the first day of the second month following ratification by the last Member State), after ratification by all Member States, in accordance with their respective constitutional requirements. There are four candidate countries that have applied for EU membership: a bilateral agreement that creates a single base for a country`s aid. Each candidate country for EU membership has such an agreement with the EU. In its recommendation of 6 October 2004, the Commission concludes that Turkey meets the Copenhagen political criteria and recommends the opening of accession negotiations. That is why the December 2004 European Council has scheduled accession negotiations with Turkey to begin on 3 October 2005.
The Council expressed the hope that these negotiations should be based on the strategy outlined by the Commission in its October 2004 recommendation. From the beginning, the Commission has always been composed of two nationals from each of the most populous Member States and one national from each of the other Member States. However, the composition of the Commission in an enlarged Europe has been a central theme of all the debates. an official written agreement between two or more countries. When heads of state or government negotiate a treaty, they discuss it before reaching an agreement; And when they ratify a treaty, they give it their formal agreement, usually by signing or voting for it Currently, international agreements are ten times more likely to be executed by executive agreements. Despite the relative simplification of executive agreements, the President still often chooses to continue the formal process of concluding an executive agreement in order to gain congressional support on issues that require Congress to pass appropriate enforcement laws or means, as well as agreements that impose complex long-term legal obligations on the United States. For example, the agreement of the United States, Iran and other countries is not a treaty. “adoption” is the formal act that defines the form and content of a proposed text. As a general rule, the text of the treaty is adopted by the expression of the agreement of the states participating in the contracting process.
