BRUSSELS - There are no more obstacles to setting up a command center for military operations of the European Union. The British had crossed for unclear reasons earlier this week, but on Thursday there was still white smoke after consultation of EU Defense Ministers. Political objections are no longer, the bill has been completed in a few days, said Federal Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini.
The approximately thirty man who will work at the military headquarters will be accommodated at Mogherini's foreign service in Brussels. There, the three military training missions in Mali, Somalia and the Central African Republic will be directed. This is done in close cooperation with the ongoing civil missions.
