for Question Time at the part-session in January 2008

pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure

by Colm Burke

to the Council

  Subject: EU Peace-keeping Mission to Chad and Central African Republic (CAR) - short on helicopters and medical facilities

 Answer in plenary 

Can the Council say whether EU Member States have made further equipment available for the EU Peace-keeping Mission to Chad and the CAR including helicopters and medical supplies, so as to prevent any unnecessary delay in the deployment of Irish and other EU troops to this region? According to General Henri Bentegeat, the head of the EU's Military Committee, the present mission still needs transportation in the theatre of operations including helicopters, medical support and logistical assets. After the 'force generation' conference which took place in Brussels in November, have participating Member States and others come forth with extra equipment and troops?


Can the Council bolster the will among Member States to secure increased humanitarian aid to this region at EU level? What is the Council doing in relation to Chad's own domestic instability given the recent gun battles in Eastern Chad on 26 November where the Chad army supposedly killed hundreds of rebel fighters? How is the Council ensuring that the ceasefire gets back on track and that the peace deal between Chadian rebel groups and President Idriss Deby's government is restored?
