Council Decision 2007/690/CFSP

of 22 October 2007

implementing Joint Action 2005/557/CFSP on the European Union civilian-military supporting action to the African Union missions in the Darfur region of Sudan and in Somalia

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to Council Joint Action 2005/557/CFSP of 18 July 2005 on the European Union civilian-military supporting action to the African Union missions in the Darfur region of Sudan and in Somalia(1), and in particular Article 8(1), second subparagraph thereof, in conjunction with Article 23(2) of the Treaty on European Union,

Whereas:

(1) On 23 April 2007, the Council adopted Decision 2007/244/CFSP concerning the implementation of Joint Action 2005/557/CFSP on the European Union civilian-military supporting action to the African Union missions in the Darfur region of Sudan and in Somalia(2), which extended the financing for its civilian component until 31 October 2007.

(2) Pending transition of the African Union mission to a UN/AU hybrid operation (UNAMID), it has been decided to continue the European Union civilian-military supporting action to the African Union missions in the Darfur region of Sudan and in Somalia up to 31 December 2007.

(3) UNSC Resolution 1769 of 31 July 2007 stipulates that the transfer of authority (TOA) from AMIS to UNAMID is to intervene no later than 31 December 2007.

(4) On 21 September 2007, the Political and Security Committee agreed that the civilian component of the European Union civilian-military supporting action to the African Union missions in the Darfur region of Sudan and in Somalia should be closed on the date when the transfer of authority from AMIS to UNAMID takes place.

(5) As concerns the civilian component, the Council should consequently decide on the financing of the continuation of this supporting action according to the timeframes defined above.

(6) The supporting action will be conducted in the context of a situation which may deteriorate and could harm the objectives of the CFSP as set out in Article 11 of the Treaty,
