• EEAS: Libya, a Political Framework for a Crisis Approach (LIMITE, 13829-14,pdf): "Given the uncertainty regarding the duration and outcome of the conflict, which complicates EU ability for strategic planning/programming, the PFCA describes three possible scenarios for the near future; a stalemate, with no clear winner; an escalation of violence, in which one side might overcome the other following a full-scale civil war; or a cessation of hostilities and the resumption of the political process..Only a ceasefire agreement could eventually allow for a resumption of EU support." [emphasis in original].

• EEAS to: European Union Military Committee (EUMC): Concept for the Contribution of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems to EU-led Military Operations (LIMITE, 8387-14, 22 pages, pdf): "This concept provides the conceptual framework for the use of RPAS in EU-led military operations and military missions with a focus on their contribution to Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Target Acquisition (TA)....Payloads are assumed to be sensors, communication relays, laser guidance devices, cargo, guided weapons or other devices, carried internally or externally by the RPA....If the RPA is lost due to an attack or failure, no aircrew is at risk (casualty, capture). The potential impact on public opinion is accordingly less important" [emphasis added]

• COUNCIL: Strategic Committee on Immigration, Frontiers and Asylum: The future of SCIFA – Contribution to the evaluation by COREPER (LIMITE, 12996-14, pdf): "it is therefore recommended that SCIFA continues to meet beyond 2014, assisting COREPER in relation to legal, horizontal and strategic matters in the field of immigration, asylum and frontiers."

• COUNCIL: Register of Wills across the EU: The interconnection of registers of wills in the EU - State of play and future planning (LIMITE: 13003-14, pdf): "The primary objective of ENRWA (European Network of Registers of Wills Association) is to put in place and ensure the widespread adoption of a public policy tool that enables European citizens to trace all wills drawn up and registered in Europe, via the creation of registers of wills, where no such register exists, and thanks to the interconnection of existing national registers."
