THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Article 113 thereof, in conjunction with the first sentence of Article 228 (2) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas, in the context of the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations, the import regime for oranges has been changed;

Whereas the Community has agreed with the Arab Republic of Egypt that, pending the conclusion of a new Euro-Mediterranean Agreement, the said regime will be adjusted on the basis of an Agreement in the form of an exchange of letters;

Whereas the latter Agreement should now be approved,

HAS DECIDED AS FOLLOWS:

Article 1

The Agreement in the form of an exchange of letters between the European Community and the Arab Republic of Egypt on the adjustment of the regime for imports into the Community of oranges originating in and coming from Egypt is hereby approved on behalf of the Community.
