The following table of country positions wants to give a concise overview of the respective country’s main positions as expressed in the course of the reform discussions. The table does not take account of every detail of a country’s views; it also does not reveal every alteration to these views. The table rather indicates the general views held by a state. If a particular state changed significantly its views in the course of the debate, the most recent position was described in the table. The respective state was marked with an asterisk *. In that case, the reader may wish to consult the summaries of positions in Annex II to find information of how the respective views changed.
