Meeting of the European Ministers for Defence: extracts from the press conference by Hervé Morin, French Minister for Defence and President in office of the Council

4 views

The European Defence Ministers agreed to send a fleet of warships to the Somali coast, joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and at least three other countries that have deployed naval vessels to combat pirates in the world's most dangerous seas. "The fleet, the first naval mission put together by the EU, will be in place in December", Hervé Morin, French Minister for Defence and President in office of the Council, told the journalists. The force will be called Atalanta. On the ongoing Althea mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the French presidency said that the EU would take the appropriate amount of time and come back to this issue in March 2009 before deciding whether or not this operation should be concluded. "If there were to be a new operation, it would focus on training and organisation of Bosnian forces", the Minister said.
