Simon Coveney (PPE-DE). – Mr President, my oral amendment is to avoid ambiguity in recital C. I propose to insert the word ‘unfortunately’ between the word ‘whereas’ and ‘Somalia’ and to replace the words ‘with a view to restoring order’ with the words ‘with a view to taking charge’. That is in an effort to ensure that nobody would interpret recital C as justifying the setting-up of radical Islamic courts with a view to restoring order.
I hope that the other groups will agree with the PPE-DE Group on that issue. I believe it is a sensible and understandable oral amendment.
(The oral amendment was accepted)
– Before the vote on paragraph 11
Michael Gahler (PPE-DE). – (DE) Mr President, that has to do with the last paragraph, in relation both to Somalia and Mauritania. I would ask that the resolutions we adopt should, in so far as they relate to Africa, be addressed to the Panafrican Parliament as well.
