Question for written answer E-000223-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Sabine Lösing (GUE/NGL) , Cornelia Ernst (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Incorporating Libya, Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria into the Eurosur surveillance network
 Answer in writing 

The Commission and Italy, France, Cyprus, Malta and Portugal, under Spain’s direction, are backing negotiations on border police cooperation with Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt, with a view to their joining the satellite-based Seahorse Mediterranean network and, as a result, also to their incorporation into the Eurosur surveillance network.

1. What progress has been made with implementing plans to connect up contact points in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria with the satellite-based Seahorse Mediterranean network now being set up, and hence with the EU’s Eurosur network, with a view to exchanging information on irregular migration by sea with border control authorities in Cyprus, Greece, France, Italy, Malta, Portugal and Spain (see answer to Question E-010826/2015)?

2. What accounts for the receptiveness of the countries concerned to those plans or, alternatively, for their rejection of them?

3. What was the practical and strategic outcome, with a bearing on coordinating joint border control actions, of the working visits to Libya, Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria by the EU border agency, Frontex, in 2016?
