Rule "third country"
|Message:||The USA is one country, Canada is another, and Ireland is a third. The USA could sign an agreement with Canada to exclude a third country (e.g. Ireland) from their territorial waters (for fishing, for example). In EU texts, however, this term is widely used to mean 'countries outside the European Union', and sometimes 'countries outside whatever grouping of countries we are talking about'. Use: non-member \2 (or state), non-Schengen \2 (or state), \2 outside the EU/EEA etc.|
