EP calls for stronger EU action in face of Somali piracy

Since 2005, Somali piracy has escalated and become a threat to regional stability, world trade, and all forms of maritime transport. As the political situation in Somalia, which after more than two decades remains unstable, gives little hope of an overall improvement of the matter, the EP adopted a resolution intended to better deal with maritime piracy this week.   
Among other requests, MEPS called upon Member states to provide more material assistance and naval vessels to the operation ATALANTA, the European Naval Force launched in December 2008 and extended by the Council until the end of 2014. Similarly, the EP asked for more humanitarian assistance in order to improve the on-shore situation.
