A. Letter from the Community

Gentlemen,

I have the honour to confirm that we agree to the following interim arrangements for the extension of the Protocol currently in force ( 1 July 2001 to 30 June 2004) setting out the fishing opportunities and financial contribution provided for in the Fisheries Agreement between the European Economic Community and the Government of the Republic of Cape Verde, pending the negotiations on the amendments to be made to the Protocol:

1. The arrangements applicable over the last three years will be renewed from 1 July 2004 until 30 June 2005.

The Community's financial contribution under the interim arrangements will correspond to the annual amount provided for in Article 2 of the Protocol currently in force. The financial compensation will be paid no later than 31 January 2005. Payment for the targeted measures specified in Article 3 of the Protocol will be made once the relevant requirements stipulated in that Article have been met.

2. During this period, fishing licences will be granted within the limits set in Article 1 of the Protocol currently in force, by means of fees or advances corresponding to those set in point 2 of the Annex to the Protocol.

I should be obliged if you would acknowledge receipt of this letter and confirm that you are in agreement with its terms.

Please accept, Gentlemen, the assurance of my highest consideration.

On behalf of the Council of the European Union
