EU arms embargo on Guinea
In October 2009 EU Council Common Position 2009/788/CFSP imposed sanctions on Guinea in response to the violent crack-down by Guinean government forces on political demonstrators in September 2009 and concerns about the general political situation in the country. The sanctions included an arms embargo as well as travel sanctions against the members of the Guinean Government.
The embargo has been regularly extended for a one-year period, most recently by Council Decision 2012/665/CFSP until 27 October 2013.
