Minutes from the negotiations on the Common Position 2008/944/CFSP on Arms Exports

European Defence Agency did not have the information requested.

Dear European Defence Agency,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

I am a BA student at the University of Maastricht and I need primary sources on the negotiation process on the Common Position 2008/944/CFSP for my BA thesis. Thus, I was wondering if I can reach access to minutes/ reports from the negotiations in the months (July-December) preceding the adoption of the Common Position on arms exports which would perhaps reveal the interests and preferences of the concerned European arms manufacturers and the respective EU actors involved.

Yours faithfully,

Teodor Uzunov
