COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) No 380/2014

of 14 April 2014

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) thereof,

Having regard to Council Decision 2010/638/CFSP of 25 October 2010 concerning restrictive measures against the Republic of Guinea (1),

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

Council 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) (replaced by Decision 2010/638/CFSP). Those measures included a prohibition on the provision of technical and financial assistance and other services related to military equipment and an embargo on the sale, supply, transfer or export of equipment which might be used for internal repression.

(2)

On 14 April 2014, the Council adopted Decision 2014/213/CFSP (4) amending Decision 2010/638/CFSP lifting the arms embargo and the embargo concerning equipment which might be used for internal repression.

(3)

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

(4)

(4)

Annex I is deleted.

(5)

Annex III is replaced by the text set out in the Annex to this Regulation.
