The Council, with a view to concluding the international negotiations with the six partners on the site of ITER, decided unanimously to modify the Commission’s negotiating Directives.

These directives thus modified:
• ensure the widest possible international partnership;
• confirm the European support for Cadarache as the site for ITER;
• recognise the importance of the broader approach in the negotiations with all partners;
• provide clarification on the transitional arrangements to ensure an efficient start to ITER joint implementation.
