E.U. ratifies trade pact

By B. Muralidhar Reddy

LAHORE, APRIL 24. Pakistan is elated over the decision of the European Parliament on Thursday to approve the ratification of Pakistan-E.U. Cooperation Agreement on Partnership and Development, commonly known as Third Generation Agreement.

Islamabad was on tenterhooks over the proposed pact in view of appeals by the Opposition parties in the country to E.U. not to ratify it till "genuine democracy" was restored.

According to Foreign Office spokesman this is a major achievement, in view of the "negative and systematic" campaign mounted by John Cushnahan, Rapporteur of the European Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee.
