Three new EU missions on the African continent
The EU’s Political and Security Committee (PSC) was hard at work paying $10. July 2012 and the weeks before. Its essential function is to politically coordinate the operational concepts developed by the EU’s military staffs among the participating states and then to decide upon them. Unlike the Council’s decisions, which are increasingly adopted in advance and made public, the operational concepts are not available for inspection. Thus, it is hard to tell what exactly will be the content of the three new missions in Niger, Sudsudan and the Horn of Africa, which will be launched on 10. The PSC launched the project in July, as if it had been a matter of nailing the head to the wall before the summer break.
Let’s start with Sudan, which declared its independence from Sudan with massive Western support almost exactly a year ago and has since been mired in a series of internal and border conflicts with Sudan, while u.a. half of the population is threatened by hunger due to the cessation of oil demand.
