"Sanctions" of the EU member states

In the - then still - 14 other member states of the European Union (EU) there were fears that xenophobic and racist statements by leading FPÖ functionaries could rub off on government policy. The governments of the 14 countries coordinated and decided to reduce their bilateral relations at government and diplomatic level with the Schüssel I government. The Czech Republic, Canada, Israel and Norway followed suit. On the part of the federal government, these measures were referred to as " (EU) sanctions against Austria ".

In September 2000, the 14 governments lifted the reductions in relations.
