The European Agriculture Council reiterated on 18 September its full support for Ukraine, and the Commission informed member states about the expiry, on 15 September 2023, of the safeguard measures for Ukrainian imports that applied in the five frontline member states. The Commission explained that thanks to the work of the coordination platform with Ukraine and the solidarity lanes, the market distortions in these five countries had been resolved. The majority of member states welcomed the expiry of the safeguard measures, once it was noted that market disturbances had normalised, and considering Ukraine's commitment to introduce measures to avoid future market distortions. Additionally, they highlighted the importance of safeguarding the integrity of the single market. The Council concluded that it is necessary to continue monitoring the situation.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
