    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS - The "operational area" of the EU's Triton border-patrol and rescue mission will be extended after its resources and units are strengthened under a new EU accord, European Commission spokesperson Natasha Bernaud said Friday. She did not specify how this would happen because "the decision is up to Italy and (EU border agency) Frontex". The geographical extension, beyond 30 nautical miles from coastlines, "has nothing to do with the mandate," she said. (ANSAmed).
