Brisel Agreement

4. Paragraphs 2 and 3 do not apply to issues under sections 3, 4 or 5 where the policyholder, the insured, the beneficiary of the insurance contract, the aggrieved, the consumer or the worker are the plaintiffs and the contract is not valid under a provision in these sections. The validity of the for agreement cannot be challenged solely because the contract is not valid. On Monday, both sides said the U.S. agreement could “make a useful contribution” to a future global dialogue. the use or operation of vessels, facilities or aircraft covered by point 1 (a), to the extent that the legislation of the Member State in which these aircraft are registered does not prohibit, in relation to these non-certification agreements, the responsibility for ensuring such risks; This regulation should not apply to arbitration proceedings. This regulation should not prevent the courts of a Member State from referring the parties to arbitration, withdrawing or rejecting the proceedings, or considering whether the arbitration agreement is null, nil or not, in accordance with their national law, when they bring legal action in a case in which the parties have entered into an arbitration agreement. 2. Without prejudice to Article 26, a jurisdiction of a Member State over which an agreement under Article 25 confers exclusive jurisdiction suspends the proceedings until the court seized on the basis of the agreement declares that it has no jurisdiction under the agreement. Following the conclusion of the agreement, the European Commission officially announced that work on the ASA with Kosovo[8] and accession negotiations with Serbia had begun.

The agreement was supported by the European Union, NATO, the OSCE and the United Nations. [9] But the agreement falls short of mutual recognition – something Pristina has been calling for since its declaration of independence from Belgrade in 2008. A decision by a jurisdiction of a Member State on whether an arbitration agreement can be rendered null and void should not be subject to the rules of recognition and enforcement established by this Regulation, whether the court has found it on its merits or incidentally. On 22 December 2000, the Council adopted Regulation 44/2001 ,EC, which replaces the 1968 Brussels Convention on the territory of the Member States covered by the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and between Member States other than Denmark. By the Council`s decision 2006/325/EC (7), the Community reached an agreement with Denmark guaranteeing the application in Denmark of the provisions of Regulation (EC) No. 44/2001. The 1988 Lugano Convention was revised by the Convention on Judicial Competence, Recognition and Enforcement of Civil and Commercial Affairs (8), signed in Lugano on 30 October 2007 by the Community, Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland (hereafter the 2007 Lugano Convention). Before coming into force, the agreement signed today must be ratified by the Belgian parliament and other technical arrangements must be concluded with the Brussels airport company in order to facilitate these operations. The 15-point agreement provides for the merger of the four northern Serb municipalities (North Mitrovica, Zvecan, Zubin Potok and Leposavic) under Kosovo law. This municipality would have powers in the areas of economic development, education, public health and urban planning.

One of the stumbling blocks was security. The agreement provides that only the Kosovar police will be deployed in the north, but the regional commander will be a Serb and the force will reflect the ethnic composition of the region. As far as justice is concerned, a section of the Kosovo Court of Appeal will hold a permanent meeting in northern Mitrovica, which will be attended mainly by Serbian judges.
