To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what role DSACEUR will play in EU operations in the Congo region. [119103]

As envisaged at the Nice European Council in 2000, operational planning for EU-led operations without recourse to NATO assets and capabilities will be carried out within one of the strategic level headquarters available to the EU. As framework nation for the deployment in the Democratic Republic of Congo, France is providing the Operation Headquarters in Paris which will be augmented by officers from participating nations including from the United Kingdom. NATO will be kept informed of the general progress of the operation.
