COUNCIL DECISION 2007/244/CFSP

of 23 April 2007

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

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 mission in the Darfur region of Sudan (1), and in particular the second subparagraph of Article 8(1) thereof, in conjunction with Article 23(2) of the Treaty on European Union,

Whereas:

(1)

On 17 October 2006, the Council adopted Decision 2006/725/CFSP (2) concerning the implementation of Joint Action 2005/557/CFSP on the European Union civilian-military supporting action to the African Union mission in the Darfur region of Sudan, which extended the financing for its civilian component until 30 April 2007.

(2)

Pending transition of the African Union (AU) mission to a UN/AU hybrid operation, the Council has, in accordance with Article 2 of Decision 2006/486/CFSP (3), decided to continue the European Union civilian-military supporting action to the African Union mission in the Darfur region of Sudan.

(3)

Therefore, as concerns the civilian component, the Council should decide on the financing of the continuation of this supporting action.

This amount shall cover the period of the current mandate of the AU Mission in the Darfur region of Sudan (AMIS) and a subsequent transitional period leading to a possible transition to a UN/AU hybrid operation.
