SUBJECT: FRENCH SUPPORT FOR UNSCR 1816 (SOMALIA PIRACY)

REF: A. STAE 74305
B. PARIS 1293
C. PARIS 1306

1. (SBU) In response to ref A, MFA Horn of Africa Desk
Officer Thierry Caboche reviewed assistance France has been
providing to Africa (refs B-C), particularly France's
engagement in naval patrols to counter piracy in the Horn of
Africa and its efforts to engage Denmark, the Netherlands,
and Sweden in this activity.

2. (SBU) Caboche noted that France and Spain had initiated
a project within the EU to implement further UNSCR 1816, with
discussions on-going in Brussels. The goal of the project
would be to establish an EU mission that would engage in
anti-piracy operations near Somalia. Caboche said that the
GOF had informed the USG (Department, NSC, DOD) of this
initiative via France's Washington Embassy, and that it would
continue to do so as the project evolved.
