sanctions they imposed on Austria, but they say they will keep a

its government. Austria's fourteen EU partners, ending Chancellor
Wolfgang Schuessel's seven-month diplomatic quarantine on Tuesday

fourteen to apologize for what he described as "this nonsense,"
their statement represented a tacit acknowledgement that their action
had been a mistake. In a joint statement released by France, current
holder of the rotating EU presidency, the fourteen countries said,
"The measures implemented by the fourteen have been effective. They
can now be lifted."
