(B2) According to my latest information, planning for the Somali military training mission in Uganda (EUTM) is accelerating (1). After'Initial military directive (IMD), the head of mission, Spanish Colonel Ellul should be able to draw up the CONOPS (Concept of Operations), as well as the PGR (Permanent General Requirements) which make it possible to define exactly the needs. This Conops could be approved quickly by the political-military group (barring an unexpected problem – which can always arise), then go to the Cops at the end of February and to the Council immediately (at point A or by silence procedure). The operation plan could be adopted in March. And the first elements
already sent to prepare the ground (preparatory team).
