The 24th ESDP mission “EuSecfor Somalia” green light Tuesday

The 27 foreign ministers and defense of the European Union should engage a little more, Tuesday, November 17, to a relief operation to train soldiers in Somalia (Somalia or EUSEC EUSECFOR *). The Ministers of Defense and should adopt the concept of crisis management (CMC). This will depend largely on the options paper submitted by the politico-military, a document of some thirty pages (To go faster, experts have in fact decided to transform this “option papers” in CMC).
They should then ask the experts “continue the planning work without prejudging the possible consequences of a possible ESDP action. The planning of the operation (concept of operation – CONOPS, operational plan – OpPlan) will be accelerated. The common stock may be “adopted quickly, perhaps by December“Launched in the wake, said a European diplomat. Several assessment missions (Fact Finding Missions) have already been there (Addis Ababa, Kampala …) and will continue their work to establish the practical operation.

• This mission is a new kind. This time, it is not counsel or assist a State in its security reform (as in the Congo) or form of supervision (as in Afghanistan) but rather to provide basic training to soldiers destined to go to the front. This is the first mission “non Petersberg and in fact the first application of the Treaty of Lisbon which broadens the scope of the traditional tasks of interposition or restoring peace to”consultancy and assistance concerning military“(Article 43). At the international level, this operation should be based on resolutions Security Council UN No.1772, 1863 and, especially, on resolution 1872 which calls “urges its member states to contribute to the Trust Fund for United Nations security institutions in Somalia and to provide technical assistance for training and equipping security forces Somali “ (it would not be so necessary to have a further formal decision of the Security Council. But a resolution commending the efforts of the EU would welcome and comfortable European operation).

• The need to quickly train the Somali security forces is the result of lack of commitment of the international community. After the failure of Operation Restore Hope and the withdrawal of UN forces, no state in the northern hemisphere does go directly involved on the ground in Somalia in what looks like a trap. The AMISOM troops, themselves suffer from a deficit (about 5200 men on a target in 2006 to about 8000 men).

• The operation would take place mainly Uganda which are already trained Somali soldiers by the Ugandan forces (UPDF), under the auspices of AMISOM (peacekeeping force of African Union). The formation and training of soldiers in Somalia is also part of the mandate of AMISOM. For some trainers, like the French, this should not pose problems. Elements of the Foreign Legion, from the French forces based in Djibouti (FFDJ) are already come and train, Singo (Kiboga district), the African troops from mission to AMISOM in Somalia.

• The operation aims to train about 1000 to 2000 soldiers. The basic training is quite short – a few weeks – and more destinationborn to teach soldiers the basic rudiments of military action in Group: obey combat shooting, implementation and control of a checkpoint principles of law of war (we do not draw a red cross or red crescent, etc …), first aid … It also aims to identify elements that could serve as guidelines (NCO or officer). A second more elaborate training would take place for them. BriefAs a European diplomat said, this operation aims to provide “Somalia embryo force beginning with basic training and if possible up to the training command.” This training is integrated, in fact, in a more general project of the Somali government to restructure its armed forces and build a new security force of 6,000 men.

• Somali troops have been trained 1) in Uganda by the African Union, with the support of Americans, about a thousand soldiers have already been trained by Ugandans for a year (some receiving long-term training of six months at the military school of the UPDF – Ugandan forces – of Bihanga) – another battalion is in training, 2) to Djibouti by the French (500 people receiving training from a few weeks early in August and October) and Djibouti. But the number is still inadequate compared to the target.

• According to preliminary assessments, to train 2,000 soldiers, he would about 400 trainers some of which may be provided by countries of the African Union. The EU could provide up to 200. The United States and Russia are also interested in supporting this training (not automatically trainers). The EU side, it is not yet the frenzied enthusiasm. “Many countries were originally booked on this operation, there is much progress“Notes one European diplomat. A dozen states are well prepared to embark on this mission or support: France, Spain, Finland, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Germany (Poland, Hungary study support).

• L ‘control of troops trained and should be insured on their return to Somalia, soldiers AMISOM (those formed by Ugandans already accompanying the troops keeping the peace in that country).

• Regarding their payment Military Somali – Including checking the destination of the money – a key point of the device, one of the tracks could be followed to follow the same track as the international financing. The United Nations established the Trust Fund for security for Somalia and a trust fund for AMISOM. At the Somali Government, the firm Price Waterhouse Cooper who has been overseeing the reception of international funds, their management and ensure that the objectives of donors are respected.

• The financing of the operation should be done mainly by contributions of participating member states (each state financing his own troops). Funding of collective charges being provided through the ATHENA mechanism, the 26 Member States participating in military actions PeSDC (less Denmark). Concerning the payment of soldiers, however, it can not be provided directly by the EU, the EU can not directly funding the establishment of an armed force. But she already contributes indirectly to the actions carried stability in Somalia.

• Financial support from the EU actions to stabilize Somalia. The EU budget directly supports AMISOM – 35.5 million euros (20.2 million euros already committed) through the Peace Facility for Africa – and African Union in its effort to building capacity to plan, manage and coordinate support operations to peace — 4.7 million euros from the Instrument for Stability –With implementation of theUnit of Planning and Strategic Management (MPSU Strategic Management and Planning Unit). The benefits of 4 MPSU planning officers seconded Europe (budget, human resources, communications, engineering) — financed by an additional contribution of 750,000 euros –. Finally, the strategic agenda of the EU for Somalia – which covers both the political aspects of development – Security amounts to 215.4 million euros for the period 2008-2013 (about 180 million on 87 projects already identified).
