19.05.2008 - Council extends mandate of EUBAM Rafah mission
(Extract from the 2867th AGRICULTURE and FISHERIES Council meeting of 19 May 2008, p. 11) The Council adopted on 19 May 2008, a joint action amending joint action 2005/889/CFSP extending until 24 November 2008 the mandate of the EU Border Assistance Mission for the Rafah crossing point between Gaza and Egypt (EUBAM Rafah). The Council established the mission on 25 November 2005. The aim of EU BAM Rafah is to provide a third party presence at the Rafah Crossing Point between Gaza and Egypt in order to contribute, in co-operation with the European Community's institution building efforts, to the implementation of the Israeli-Palestinian Agreement on Movement and Access, ensuring the opening of the Rafah Crossing Point, and to build up confidence between the parties. Due to the situation in Gaza, the mission is currently on stand-by, but the EU has expressed its readiness to resume its activities as soon as circumstances permit and in agreement with the parties.
