The Council of Ministers of the European Union has published the text of its common position on the proposed Regulation on development cooperation with South Africa. Amendments adopted by the Council added protection of the environment as an area covered by the proposed Regulation, and approved Community-based organizations as eligible partners for financial assistance. Programming of activities should be carried out in cooperation with the South African government, in line with an amendment of the European Parliament.
