(BRUSSELS2) First European forces to be engaged in the Rep. Central African Republic (in addition to the French), the Estonians should return to the country in a few days. Tallinn was indeed the first State to affirm its commitment to EUFOR RCA. Very early !

The defined 4 month mandate ends in a few days. And it does not appear that Estonia wants to extend or renew the mandate of its blue and black flag soldiers.
