Council Conclusions on Operation Atalanta





Council Conclusions on Operation Atalanta


BRUSSELS, Kingdom of Belgium, June 15, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — 2950th General Affairs Council meeting.

The Council adopted the following conclusions:

“The Council noted that the Operation Atalanta had demonstrated its ability to act effectively against piracy, that piracy off the coast of Somalia was likely to remain a serious threat beyond Operation Atalanta’s current end date of 13 December 2009, and that early agreement on extending the operation would facilitate the necessary force generation. In this context, the Council agreed that Operation Atalanta should be extended for one year from its current end date”
