–   having regard to Rules 51, 83(7) and 43(1) of its Rules of Procedure,

–   having regard to the report of the Committee on Transport and Tourism (A6-0458/2007),

1.  Approves the conclusion of the Protocol;

2.  Instructs its President to forward its position to the Council and the Commission, and the governments and parliaments of the Member States and the Kingdom of Morocco.


EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

The Euro-Mediterranean Aviation Agreement between the European Community and the Kingdom of Morocco was negotiated on the basis of a mandate given by the Council in December 2004. The agreement was signed on 12 December 2006.

The Republic of Bulgaria and Romania acceded to the European Union on 1 January 2007. Pursuant to Article 6(2) of the Act concerning the Conditions of Accession, those two States undertook to accede to the Agreements and Conventions concluded or signed by the Member States and the Community acting jointly.

The simplified procedure applies to accession to those Agreements and Conventions. A Protocol should be concluded by the Council of the European Union, acting unanimously on behalf of the Member States, and the third countries concerned.

The accession of the Republic of Bulgaria and Romania to the Euro-Mediterranean Aviation Agreement between the European Community and the Kingdom of Morocco signed in Brussels on 12 December 2006 should therefore be approved through the conclusion of a Protocol amending that Agreement.


PROCEDURE

Title

Amendment of the Euro-Mediterranean Aviation Agreement between the EC and Morocco, to take account of the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the EU
