European Union defense ministers agreed Tuesday to send a team to Lebanon to evaluate a request from the government in Beirut for help in reforming its security sector, EU officials said. The team is due to leave shortly for Beirut, said an official who spoke on condition of anonymity pending an official announcement. The EU is considering a program that would assist Lebanon's armed forces, police, prison staff, border guards and judiciary. It would be similar to the EU program now running to modernize Congo's security services. The EU previously has organized such assistance for nations in eastern Europe and the Balkans. Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora requested assistance in recent contacts with EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, one official said.
