Council of the European Union — 3023rd Council meeting Part I

“The Coun­cil notes with con­cern the con­tin­u­ing impact of pira­cy off the coast of Soma­lia on inter­na­tion­al mar­itime secu­ri­ty and on the eco­nom­ic activ­i­ties and secu­ri­ty of coun­tries in the region. The Coun­cil reit­er­ates its deter­mi­na­tion to strength­en the EU’s over­all engage­ment to enhance region­al capac­i­ty to fight piracy.

The Coun­cil com­mends Oper­a­tion Ata­lan­ta for its suc­cess­es in deter­ring, pre­vent­ing and dis­rupt­ing pirates’ activ­i­ties, espe­cial­ly in pro­tect­ing World Food Pro­gramme and AMISOM ship­ments. The Coun­cil agrees to pro­long the oper­a­tion for anoth­er two years until Decem­ber 2012. The Coun­cil intends to have a strate­gic dis­cus­sion on the oper­a­tion in ear­ly Autumn as part of the EU’s com­pre­hen­sive engage­ment in the region. The Coun­cil also agrees in prin­ci­ple to extend the Area of Oper­a­tions fur­ther to its East and South in order to respond to the increased range of pirates’ attacks. It strong­ly encour­ages the inter­na­tion­al mar­itime com­mu­ni­ty to fur­ther pro­mote full adher­ence to rec­om­mend­ed best prac­tice in order to con­tin­ue increas­ing its capac­i­ty to meet its respon­si­bil­i­ty to keep its ves­sels safe.”
