XIV Italy - 1996

The 14th COSAC in Rome on 24-25 June 1996 warmly welcomed the conclusions of the European Council in Turin on 29 March 1996. On the opening day of the IGC, the Heads of State or Government had for the first time obliged the Council Presidency to “provide information to the national parliaments through COSAC”.

The 14th COSAC in Rome represented the first opportunity to implement this new initiative. Mr Lamberto Dini, Italian Minister of Foreign affairs, presented a summary of the progress made to date of the IGC and of the work of the Italian Presidency following the European Council in Florence.
