OPERATION SHARP GUARD UPDATE

MISSION:

To conduct operations to monitor and enforce compliance with UN sanctions in accordance with UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR) 713, 757, 787 , 820 and 943. Combined Task Force 440, in particular, has prevented all unauthorized shipping from entering the territorial waters of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) and all arms from entering the former Yugoslavia. As a consequence of UNSC resolutions 1021 and 1022, the SHARP GUARD mission is currently limited to arms embargo enforcement. In particular, UNSC resolution 1022 suspended indefinitely, subject to certain provisions, the commercial embargo against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia; SHARP GUARD units remain ready to resume at short notice, full implementation of sanctions if the conditions set by the resolution are not met. As per UNSC resolution 1021, the weapons and military equipments embargo against the former Yugoslavia remains in effect until the conditions set out in the resolution are met.
