Reply by the WEU Council to Assembly Recommendation 254 on security and the Mediterranean (London, 27 November 1974)

On 27 November 1974, the Secretary-General of Western European Union (WEU) circulates the Council’s reply to Assembly Recommendation 254 on security and the Mediterranean, which incorporates several British proposals from documents WPM (74) 28 and WPM (74) 28/1. The text emphasises that these two subjects have been considered and studied by all the member countries of WEU and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). But given the changing political and military situations in the region, the Council notes that the existing studies and analyses will have to be brought up to date and developed, particularly in the areas of anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles and observation satellites. Regarding the suggestion that France should resume its former command responsibility in the western Mediterranean, the Council points out that it is not in a position to express an opinion since this matter concerns France’s relations with the Atlantic Alliance.
