The EC/Israel Co-operation Council last met on 20 February 1984 when the operation of the EC/Israel co-operation agreement was reviewed and the Community confirmed its assurance that the implications of enlargement for the agricultural exports of its Mediterranean partners would be taken into account. The Israeli Government have requested a meeting of the Council in 1985, but no date has yet been fixed. The United Kingdom plays a full part in the preparations for and is represented at meetings of the EC/Israel Cooperation Council, although only the Presidency and Commission speak on behalf of the Community.
