In 1983 and 1984, they had explored the possibility of obtaining observer status in the Council, with the Secretariat and with some delegations. As a result of these approaches there was a discussion in the Council in the summer of 1984 about the status and obligations of observers. The EEC argued that observer status only made sense if it was clearly intended as the first step towards membership of the GATT; permanent observers ("voyeurs") were not to be encouraged. At that time the USSR was not prepared to talk publicly about GATT membership and the matter was allowed to drop.

11 Historically, Western Europe has been more trade dependent than the United States and less willing to engage in economic warfare. Geographical proximity and long-established economic links also play a part in determining Alliance attitudes: Eastern Europe and the USSR trade mostly with Western Europe, whereas China trades mainly with Hong Kong, Japan and the United States. The philosophical disputes within CoCom over the strategic embargo (and the related problem of the extra territorial reach of American legislation) reflect these divergent interests, but they have not so far spilled over into the GATT.

Mastanduno attributes this primarily to two factors.
