Relations with the African continent
Bartels has in the past voted in favor of German participation in United Nations peacekeeping missions as well as in United Nations-mandated European Union peacekeeping missions on the African continent, such as in Somalia – both Operation Atalanta (2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014) and EUTM Somalia (2015) –, Darfur/Sudan (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014), South Sudan (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014), Mali – both EUTM Mali (2014 and 2015) and MINUSMA (2013 and 2014) –, and the Central African Republic (2014). In 2013, he abstained from the votes on extending the mandate for participation in EUTM Somalia and EUTM Mali, and he voted against the participation in Operation Atalanta in 2012.
