COUNCIL DECISION (CFSP) 2016/917

of 9 June 2016

repealing Decision 2010/656/CFSP renewing the restrictive measures against Côte d'Ivoire

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article 29 thereof,

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

Whereas:

(1)

On 15 October 2010, the United Nations Security Council adopted United Nations Security Council Resolution (‘UNSCR’) 1946 (2010) which renewed the measures imposed against Côte d'Ivoire.

(2)

On 29 October 2010, the Council adopted Decision 2010/656/CFSP (1) renewing the restrictive measures against Côte d'Ivoire.

(3)

On 28 April 2016, the United Nations Security Council adopted UNSCR 2283 (2016), terminating, with immediate effect, all UN sanctions against Côte d'Ivoire.

(4)

In the light of UNSCR 2283 (2016) as well as recent developments in Côte d'Ivoire, the Council has decided to lift also the entirety of the Union's own, additional restrictive measures against that country.

(5)

Decision 2010/656/CFSP should therefore be repealed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

Decision 2010/656/CFSP is repealed.
