WEU maritime operation in the Adriatic (1993)

On 10 July 1992, the Council of Ministers of Western European Union (WEU) decides that WEU’s naval forces will participate in monitoring the embargo imposed by the United Nations against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in the Adriatic (‘Sharp Vigilance’ and ‘Sharp Fence’ operations). In this context, the WEU and NATO Councils decide to implement a joint operation from June 1993 to June 1996, placed under a single command and known as Sharp Guard.
