3051st Council meeting Justice and Home Affairs

Main results of the Council

Home affairs ministers adopted negotiation directives for PNR agreements with Australia, Canada and the United States of America. This allows the Commission to start negotiating with these three countries. Further discussions on the fight against terrorism focused on:
– the EU counter-terrorism coordinator’s latest report and discussion paper,
– the question of sharing information on terrorist threat levels between the member states, and
– the recommendations of the ad hoc High Level Group on cargo security/civil aviation.
Other home affairs items included a discussion on the Commission’s communication on concrete actions regarding the EU’s Internal Security Strategy. Home affairs ministers also adopted conclusions on preventing and combating identity-related crimes and on the fight against crimes committed by mobile (itinerant) criminal groups as well as an action plan to combat illegal trafficking in so called “heavy” firearms.
