EU to suspend arms, reassess aid to Egypt

"Brussels - European Union foreign ministers agreed Wednesday to suspend the delivery of any equipment to Egypt that could be used against protesters at emergency talks in Brussels.

The ministers stopped short of an EU weapons ban, but decided to review all exports under the bloc's code of conduct, which restricts deliveries to countries undergoing internal strife or human rights abuses. This effectively puts a stop to military deliveries.

Countries including Germany, France, Britain and the Netherlands have already suspended weapons supplies.

The 28 EU members “agreed to suspend export licences to Egypt of any equipment which might be used for internal repression.” Examples could include water cannon, barbed wire or truncheons.

“The EU condemns in the clearest possible terms all acts of violence,” ministers said in a statement. Egyptian security force operations had been “disproportionate,” they said, while also condemning “acts of terrorism.”

The ministers also decided to review a 5-billion-euro (6.7-billion-dollar) aid package agreed last year, “on the basis of Egypt's commitment to the principles that underpin” it. Very little of the money has flowed, due in part to a lack of democratic reform.

They decided that “assistance in the socio-economic sector and to civil society will continue,” to avoid harming the most vulnerable groups in Egyptian society. "
