Summary: February 6, 2003: Commission statement on the Adoption of the Constitutional Charter of Serbia and Montenegro (Brussels)
We welcome the adoption of the Constitutional Charter and the Implementing Law. We now look forward to the implementation of this Charter and all the other necessary steps to make the institutions of the restructured state work.
It represents an important step forward in cooperation between Serbia and Montenegro.
We await with particular interest the Internal Market and Trade Action Plan which has now been promised for March 2003, as this is key for progress towards any agreement with the EU. We also look forward to the implementation of the political and economic and sectoral reforms and the fulfilment of international obligations which are also key to deeper relations with the EU.
We remain ready to help, with practical advice and support, the governments in their efforts to make their state functional in order that it can make progress towards a deeper relationship with the European Union.
