Ministers adopt conclusions on Guinea-Bissau

Following the coup d’etat in Guinea-Bissau, the Council on Foreign Affairs has urged to an immediate reestablishment of the legitimate government, the completion of the interrupted democratic electoral process and the immediate restoration of constitutional order. According to the conclusions adopted during the course of its last meeting “[t]he EU is ready to impose restrictive measures against individuals who continue to engage in or provide support for acts that threaten the peace, security and stability of Guinea-Bissau."
The EU won’t recognise self-appointed transitional institutions or any kind of arrangement, and therefore it rejects the establishment of a so-called "Transitional National Council".
Sanctions or restrictive measures (the two terms are used interchangeably) have been frequently imposed by the EU in recent years, either on an autonomous EU basis or implementing binding Resolutions of the Security Council of the United Nations. Restrictive measures imposed by the EU may target governments of third countries, or non-state entities and individuals (such as terrorist groups and terrorists). They may comprise arms embargoes, other specific or general trade restrictions (import and export bans), financial restrictions, restrictions on admission (visa or travel bans), or other measures, as appropriate.
