Fourteenth Plenary Session of the Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia

The Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia (CGPCS) held its Fourteenth Plenary Session at the UN Headquarters in New York on 1 May 2013 under the Chairmanship of the United States of America. Participants agreed that while piracy has been reduced dramatically through the concerted efforts of the international community and the Somali people themselves, this positive trend is inherently reversible because the fundamental conditions that permit piracy have not changed. The CGPCS committed to continuing its work to eliminate piracy emanating from Somalia, including by enabling the Federal Government of Somalia to lead an effective and sustainable response to piracy both ashore and at sea, and dealing effectively with such criminal activity by its citizens. The CGPCS endorsed the progress made by the five Working Groups and tasked them to continue their work in conformity with the statements of the respective chairmen
