  • [01] Great Lakes crisis: Emma Bonino calls on the Kigali government to ensure the safety of civilian populations and for the urgent opening of supply routes

    The European Commissioner for Humanitarian aid, Emma Bonino, called on Sunday on the Kigali government to assume its responsibilities concerning the safety of the refugees and to abide by international human rights conventions. Mrs Bonino also called for the urgent opening of supply routes to channel emergency aid for nearly 1 million Hutu refugees in Eastern Zaïre, in particular to the Mugunga camp with a safe passage through both the Kivu Lake and the Goma airport.

    [02] Karel Van Miert links Deutsche Telekom's new business user tariffs to comprehensive network access

    Karel Van Miert, the European Commissioner for Competition, has agreed that the German Federal Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (BMPT) grant Deutsche Telekom's application for certain new business customer tariffs by 1 November 1996. His agreement is conditional on the conclusion of retroactive network access agreements between DT and its competitors by 31 December 1996 and on the BMPT taking additional regulatory steps required for competitive network access in the German market before that date.

    [03] Commission authorizes the acquisition of Mercantile & General Reinsurance Company by Schweizer Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft

    The European Commission has approved an operation by which Schweizer Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft will acquire sole control of Mercantile & General Reinsurance Company (M&G). M&G was previously owned by the British Prudential Group. Schweizer Rück's worldwide market share will be below 15%. The acquisition of M&G will therefore not lead to the creation of a dominant position.

    [04] João de Deus Pinheiro propose l'"écogestion" entre le Nord et le Sud pour préserver les ressources environnementales de la Planète.

    João de Deus Pinheiro, Commissaire européen au Développement, a proposé aujourd'hui que la préservation des forêts tropicales fasse l'objet d'une coopération accrue entre les pays développés et ceux en voie de développement. Dans un discours prononcé devant la Confédération européenne des Industries du Bois, à Viana do Castelo, Portugal, le Commissaire a constaté la nécessité d'agir pour préserver les ressources forestières de la planète en associant les notions d'environnement et de développement. "L'environnement est devenu une véritable dimension du développement', a-t-il dit. João de Deus Pinheiro propose que le partenariat existant notamment au sein de la Convention de Lomé s'applique au domaine environnemental en mettant en place une "écogestion" basée sur des principes politiques, sociaux, économiques et environnementaux communs.
