Recommendation 363 of the WEU Assembly on energy and security (Paris, 4 December 1980)

On 4 December 1980, the Assembly of Western European Union (WEU) adopts Recommendation 363 on energy and security. It emphasises that the most important aim of any European energy policy should be to achieve maximum independence from imported oil in the shortest possible time. The document makes a series of recommendations to the Council to urge the member governments to adopt convergent energy measures in the absence of agreement to implement a stringent Western European policy, and to determine the acceptable threshold of safety and security for imports by the Western world. Studies should be carried out on the use of other energy resources such as coal, nuclear means and renewable energy resources. Finally, the Member States are called on to participate in contingency plans for keeping open all international shipping lanes, such as the Strait of Hormuz.
