EU/Somalia — Council adopts decision on the launch of EUTM Somalia

The Coun­cil adopt­ed today — by writ­ten pro­ce­dure — a deci­sion on the launch of a Euro­pean Union mil­i­tary mis­sion to con­tribute to the train­ing of Soma­li secu­ri­ty forces (EUTM Soma­lia). This Coun­cil deci­sion, which fol­lows the approval of the Mis­sion Plan for EUTM Soma­lia, pro­vides that the Mis­sion will be launched on 7 April 2010.

The objec­tive of EUTM Soma­lia is to con­tribute to strength­en­ing the Tran­si­tion­al Fed­er­al Gov­ern­ment (TFG) of Soma­lia as a func­tion­ing gov­ern­ment serv­ing the Soma­li pop­u­la­tion, as well as to con­tribute to a com­pre­hen­sive and sus­tain­able per­spec­tive for the devel­op­ment of the Soma­li Secu­ri­ty Sec­tor by strength­en­ing the Soma­li Secu­ri­ty Forces through the pro­vi­sion of spe­cif­ic mil­i­tary train­ing and sup­port.

EUTM Soma­lia will take place main­ly in Ugan­da, where Soma­li forces are already being trained. The EU mil­i­tary mis­sion will oper­ate in close coop­er­a­tion and coor­di­na­tion with inter­na­tion­al part­ners in par­tic­u­lar the Unit­ed Nations, the African Union, AMISOM, and the Unit­ed States.
