Brussels, 17 December - The Eropean Community last night reached a common stand on the recognition of Slovenia and Croatia. Europe will recognize all the republics of former Yugoslavia which wish to be recognized and meet certain fundamental requirements. The recognition will take place on January 15. By December 23, the republics will have to send to Brussels factual guarantees concerning the respect for human rights, the rights of minorities, disarmament, security and inviolability of frontiers. A special arbitration commission will study these guarantees and submit the opinion to the ministers of the Twelve by January 15. This procedure will apply to all eastern republics, including those in the Soviet Union.
