Political and Security Committee Decision EUTM Somalia/2/2011

of 6 December 2011

on the establishment of the Committee of Contributors for the European Union military mission to contribute to the training of Somali security forces (EUTM Somalia)

(2011/814/CFSP)

THE POLITICAL AND SECURITY COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 38 thereof,

Having regard to Council Decision 2010/96/CFSP of 15 February 2010 on a European Union military mission to contribute to the training of Somali security forces(1) (EUTM Somalia), and in particular Article 8(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1) Pursuant to Article 8(5) of Council Decision 2010/96/CFSP, the Council authorised the Political and Security Committee (PSC) to take relevant decisions on the establishment of a Committee of Contributors (CoC) for EUTM Somalia.

(2) The European Council Conclusions of Nice of 7, 8 and 9 December 2000 and those of Brussels of 24 and 25 October 2002 laid down the arrangements for the participation of third States in crisis management operations and the setting-up of a CoC.

(3) The CoC will play a key role in the day-to-day management of EUTM Somalia. It will be the main forum where contributing States collectively address questions relating to the employment of their forces in the mission. The PSC, which exercises the political control and strategic direction of the mission, will take account of the views expressed by the CoC.

(4) In accordance with Article 5 of the Protocol (No 22) on the position of Denmark annexed to the Treaty on European Union and to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, Denmark does not participate in the elaboration and implementation of decisions and actions of the Union which have defence implications. Denmark does not, therefore, participate in the implementation of this Decision and in the financing of EUTM Somalia,
