News How to build the Mediterranean Union?

An information report of the Foreign Affairs Commission (France) at the conclusion of the work of an information mission held on July 31, 2007, on the theme "How to build the Mediterranean Union? " was recorded at the Presidency of the National Assembly on December 5, 2007. This information mission proposes that the Mediterranean Union relies primarily on riparian States on the basis of voluntary membership. The European Union and the Arab League would be ex officio members. However, the Mediterranean Union must be a process permanently open to all States that wish it, including other members of the European Union. The perimeter of the Mediterranean Union would be flexible depending on the projects. A summit planned for launch in June 2008, and among other things, the information mission proposes that the Mediterranean Union addresses as a priority the issues of water management, environment and know-how exchange.
