 CONCERNING THE COOPERATION BETWEEN THE BALTIC STATES IN SEEKING                
                MEMBERSHIP IN THE EUROPEAN UNION                                
                                                                                
     The  Baltic   Assembly,  confirming  the  intention  of  the               
Republic  of   Estonia,  Republic  of  Latvia,  and  Republic  of               
Lithuania to  gradually join  the European political and economic               
integration structures  and being of the opinion that this should               
have to  become one  of the  priority trends of foreign policy of               
the said  States, welcomes  the signing  of free trade agreements               
between the  European Union  and Estonia,  Latvia  and  Lithuania               
respectively.                                                                   
     The Baltic Assembly, desirous of an accelerated commencement               
of negotiations  between the European Union and the Baltic States               
concerning the  Association agreements,  hopes  these  Agreements               
will be prepared and signed as soon as possible.                                
     Seeking active  cooperation between the Baltic States in the               
preparation of  these Association Agreements, the Baltic Assembly               
recommends that  the Governments of the Baltic States, coordinate               
the preparation  process of  said Agreements, as well as commence               
consultations concerning  the harmonisation  of national  laws to               
the European Union standards.
