EU lifts UN sanctions on Côte d’Ivoire

The EU has implemented the UN’s decision in April to lift its sanctions on Côte d’Ivoire (see previous blog). The EU has now repealed the remainder of its Côte d’Ivoire sanctions, which implemented the UN regime. The UN made the decision to lift its sanctions in view of what Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon described as “the continued positive evolution of the situation in Côte d’Ivoire, including the successful conclusion of the presidential elections last year”.

See Regulation 2016/907 repealing Regulation 174/2005 and Regulation 560/2005, and Decision (CFSP) 2016/917 repealing Decision 2010/656/CFSP. HM Treasury’s notice is here.
