It is worth noting that the European Council announced on February 19 that it would launch a escort operation in the Red Sea and the Gulf called "Shield" with the goal of "restoring and maintaining freedom of navigation in the Red Sea and the Gulf."

The EU said the operation will be carried out in the main sea lines of communication in the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Strait of Hormuz, as well as in the international waters of the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Arabian Sea, Gulf of Oman and Persian Gulf, and is tentatively scheduled to last for one year.

This also means that the EU believes that the Red Sea crisis will be difficult to alleviate in the short term.
