EU arms embargo on Lebanon (non-government forces)

On 15 September 2006 the EU adopted Council Common Position 2006/625/CFSP establishing an embargo on all arms transfers to Lebanon not authorized by the Government of Lebanon or UNIFIL, the UN peacekeeping force. The embargo mirrored a UN embargo established on 11 August 2006. As with the UN embargo, the EU prohibition covers the provision of any technical training or assistance related to the supply, manufacture, maintenance or use of arms and related equipment.
