Piracy – EU Council Decision to extend the mandate of operation Atalanta until December 2018

On 28 November 2016, the EU Council, following a strategic review, confirmed the extension of the mandate of operation Atalanta to contribute to the deterrence, prevention and repression of acts of piracy and armed robbery of the Somali coast until December 2018.
