Dear Sir,

 

We refer to your email of 07 March 2021, in which you make a request for
access to documents.

 

You requested documents which contain the following information:

“[…]minutes of all meetings by the EDA and the European Union Military
Committee since Janurary [sic] 2020 when the term UAP/UAV/UAP Task Force
has been mentioned and or discussed”.

 

After a careful examination, we regret to inform you that EDA does not
hold any documents that would correspond to the description given in your
application.

 

As specified in Article 2(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001, the right of
access as defined in that regulation applies only to existing documents in
the possession of the institution. Given that no such documents,
corresponding to the description given in your application, are held by
EDA, the latter is not in a position to fulfil your request.

 

Means of redress

 

In accordance with Article 7(2) of Regulation 1049/2001, you are entitled
to make a confirmatory application requesting EDA to review its position.

Such a confirmatory application should be addressed within 15 working days
upon receipt of this email to the Chief Executive of EDA to the following
email: [1][EDA request email] .

 

Yours sincerely,
