Ministers agree to extend the mandate of EUNAVFOR

The council has recently adopted conclusions on EUNAVFOR ATALANTA,  EU’s Counter Piracy Operation. Following the Conference on the future of Somalia, which was held in London last week, ministers agreed to extend the mandate of EUNAVFOR until December 2014.
It is important to remember that, since its launch in December 2008, ATALANTA has been escorting the World Food Program (WFP) and African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) shipments to Somalia, protecting the most vulnerable shipping and deterring, preventing and repressing acts of piracy and armed robbery off the Somali coast, thus contributing to the security and economic activity of the countries in the region and of the international community as a whole.
