On 29 January 1966, following the extraordinary meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Six in Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Pierre Werner, describes the impact of the political compromise that put an end to the empty chair crisis which, for six months, had seen France boycotting intergovernmental meetings of Community bodies in Brussels.
