Visit of Patrick Nash, EUFOR Chad/RCA Operation Commander, to Javier Solana, Secretary General of the Council of the EU and High Representative for CFSP

54 views

Patrick Nash, EUFOR Chad/RCA Operation Commander, was in Brussels on 15 April 2008 to brief Javier Solana, Secretary General of the Council of the EU and High Representative for CFSP, on the ongoing deployment of the EU military in eastern Chad and neighbouring Central African Republic. The EUFOR Tchad/RCA has completed its first stage of deployment in the region, where it has a UN mandate to protect civilians and refugees. Hundreds of thousands have fled violence in Sudan's Darfur region to seek shelter in Chad, as a conflict between Khartoum and rebels in its provinces near the Chadian border stretches into its fifth year. So far, nearly 1,800 troops from 11 countries have deployed to bases in eastern Chad joining a force expected to reach full strength of 3,700 troops around the end of May. The force on the ground is commanded by French General Jean-Philippe Ganascia, who coordinates with EUFOR headquarters outside Paris headed by General Nash.
