The WEU Ministerial Council of Marseilles on 13 will complete an historical phase - the one which started with the re-launch of the WEU, and the transfer of the headquarters of the organisation to Brussels on 1992. The WEU made conclusions out of the recent EU developments: the EU in Cologne, decided to endow herself with the capacity to manage crises including military crises, putting an end to the main function of the WEU, as armed force of the European Union.
