COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) No 49/2013

of 22 January 2013

amending Regulation (EU) No 1284/2009 imposing certain specific restrictive measures in respect of the Republic of Guinea

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 215(1) and (2) thereof,

Having regard to Council Decision 2012/665/CFSP of 26 October 2012 amending Decision 2010/638/CFSP concerning restrictive measures against the Republic of Guinea (1),

Having regard to the joint proposal of the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and of the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) No 1284/2009 (2) imposed certain restrictive measures in respect of the Republic of Guinea, in accordance with Council Common Position 2009/788/CFSP (3), which was subsequently repealed and replaced by Council Decision 2010/638/CFSP (4), in response to the violent repression by security forces on political demonstrators in Conakry on 28 September 2009.

(2)

On 26 October 2012, the Council adopted Decision 2012/665/CFSP which amended Decision 2010/638/CFSP as regards the scope of the measures related to military equipment and equipment which might be used for internal repression.

(3)

Certain aspects of these measures fall within the scope of the Treaty and, therefore, regulatory action at the level of the Union is necessary in order to implement them, particularly with a view to ensuring their uniform application by economic operators in all Member States.

(4)

Regulation (EU) No 1284/2009 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
