COUNCIL DECISION (CFSP) 2020/1133

of 30 July 2020

amending Decision (CFSP) 2016/610 on a European Union CSDP Military Training mission in the Central African Republic (EUTM RCA)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article 42(4) and Article 43(2) thereof,

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

Whereas:

(1)

On 19 April 2016, the Council adopted Decision (CFSP) 2016/610 (1), which established a European Union CSDP Military Training Mission in the Central African Republic (EUTM RCA) with a mandate until 24 months after the Mission reached Full Operational Capability, that is until 19 September 2018, and a financial reference amount covering that period.

(2)

On 30 July 2018, the Council adopted Decision (CFSP) 2018/1082 (2), which extended the mandate of EUTM RCA until 19 September 2020.

(3)

On 28 May 2020, on the basis of a Strategic Review of the Mission, the Political and Security Committee recommended that the mandate of EUTM RCA be extended by a further two years.

(4)

EUTM RCA should coordinate with the European Union CSDP Advisory Mission in the Central African Republic (EUAM RCA), once EUAM RCA is launched, and with other international actors, in particular the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), with a view to ensuring the provision of a coherent integrated support to the Government and security forces of the Central African Republic.

(5)

Decision (CFSP) 2016/610 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(6)

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. Consequently, Denmark is not participating in the adoption of this Decision, is neither bound by it nor subject to its application and does not participate in the financing of EUTM RCA,
