The 29 ministers of the ESA-EU Space Council met in Brussels on 6 December 2011 and underlined the importance of space systems for security.

At this occasion, they reaffirmed GMES as a priority for the EU to ensure the development and exploitation of sustainable GMES services and infrastructures in the medium- and long-term, and urged the European Commission to take the necessary and timely actions to secure the continuity of the programme and to reassure GMES users and stakeholders of its commitment to the GMES programme.
