The Swiss parliament on Wednesday voted to officially withdraw the country’s dormant application to join the European Union.
Following a vote in the lower house, the government will now tell the EU to “consider [the application] as withdrawn,” Swiss Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter was quoted as saying by the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.

Burkhalter had earlier said the application, which was sent to the European Economic Community in 1992, was already invalid.
In 1992, the Swiss rejected joining the European Economic Area, of which Iceland, Norway and Lichtenstein are members, giving them access to the EU single market.
At the time, the Swiss government saw EEA membership as a precursor to joining the EU, and the Swiss application for EU membership has remained dormant ever since.
This article was updated to correct a reference to Swiss voters rejecting EU membership.
