Brussels, 19 and 20 July 1993
The Council heard the presentation of the Commission's opinions on the applications for membership by Cyprus and Malta.
The Council welcomed the positive message contained in those opinions regarding the eligibility and suitability of Cyprus and Malta to be part of European Union.
The Council instructed the Permanent Representatives Committee to examine those opinions - in the light of the generally positive assessment expressed by the Council - to enable the Council to adopt a position on the conclusions proposed by the Commission at its next meeting.
