  • [01] Humanitarian aid for Lebanon : Commission commits another €10 million and plans overall package of €50 million

    With growing evidence of a large-scale humanitarian crisis unfolding in Lebanon, the European Commission has mobilised a further tranche of emergency humanitarian funding to help victims of the conflict. Following the announcement of an initial emergency decision for €10 million last week (IP/06/1049), a further decision, also for €10 million, has been launched today.

    [02] Une enveloppe de €11 millions destinée l'évacuation hors du Liban des ressortissants des pays en développement

    La Commission européenne a décidé d'octroyer €11 millions pour aider au rapatriement de quelque 10.000 ressortissants des pays en développement. La Commission va utiliser le "mécanisme de réaction rapide" pour répondre l'appel de pays en développement qui tentent de rapatrier leurs ressortissants. Ce montant permettra d'évacuer les personnes les plus vulnérables (en particulier les femmes seules et les enfants). Le programme est destiné aider les autorités libanaises et les pays en développement évacuer les personnes qui sont encore au Liban, apporter un soutien et une assistance médicale aux personnes évacuées vers les pays de transit (la Syrie, la Jordanie et Chypre principalement) et contribuer au rapatriement rapide et organisé de ces personnes vers leurs pays d'origine.

    [03] Commission and Presidency to visit Middle East July 27/28

    Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja and European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy Benita Ferrero-Waldner will travel to the Middle East for talks with leading figures in Israel, the Palestinian Territories and Lebanon. They will be accompanied by EU Special Representative Marc Otte. The trip is a first opportunity for the EU to discuss with all sides the outcome of the international conference in Rome. On Thursday they expect to see Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni. They will visit Gaza to witness the conditions on the ground for Palestinian civilians and to see the Temporary International Mechanism developed by the EU in action. On Friday the Minister and the Commissioner will go to Beirut to meet Prime Minister Fuad Siniora, Speaker of the Parliament Nabih Berri and representatives of civil society. The visit will focus on the growing humanitarian crisis in both Lebanon and Gaza, and underline the need to move towards an end to hostilities.

    [04] La Commission ouvre une enquête officielle concernant des restrictions imposées sur des services aériens vers la Sardaigne

    La Commission européenne a décidé d'ouvrir une procédure formelle d'enquête sur les exigences imposées le 2 mai 2006 par l'Italie sur 16 liaisons aériennes entre trois aéroports de Sardaigne et de grands aéroports de la péninsule italienne. La Commission a des doutes sérieux quant la conformité des obligations de service public imposées par l'Italie avec la réglementation relative au marché des transports aériens et estime qu'elles risquent de fermer le marché des services aériens destination de la Sardaigne. L'Italie a deux mois pour répondre l'avis de la Commission compter de la date de réception de celui-ci.
