Discussing the situation in Egypt, the EU’s foreign affairs ministers have agreed to suspend the export licenses of any equipment that might be used for internal repression, and review their security assistance.

However, based on the EU subsidiary principle, member states must assess what the concrete steps are for national governments to define: “It is up to member states to interpret that,” said EU High Representative Catherine Ashton at a brief press conference that followed the meeting.

There was a ‘long and in-depth’ discussion, according to Ashton, but she declined to elaborate, referring to her previous statements condemning violence and supporting the  “people of Egypt” including the most vulnerable, citing women and children’s rights in particular.

Egypt remains a “crucial” partner country to the EU, and the top EU diplomat promised to follow events closely, however she underlined that that the EU has no official role in the process: “We don’t mediate. The people of Egypt are determining their own history.”

Rekao je jedan diplomata iz EU Reporter EU da institucije nemaju nadležnosti nadzirati, nadzirati ili nadgledati izvoz oružja pojedinih zemalja. Uoči sastanka Njemačka, Italija i Nizozemska već su obustavile izvoz oružja u Egipat. Nakon pada režima Hosnija Mubaraka u 2011-u, zemlje EU odobrile su dozvole za izvoz oružja u vrijednosti od oko 300 milijuna eura s Francuskom, Njemačkom, Velikom Britanijom, Italijom, Belgijom, Nizozemskom, Češkom i Bugarskom.
