Article 222 TFEU as a general solidarity clause was introduced by the ToL. Relevant provisions were contained in Articles I-43 and III-329 of the ConstT (not entered into force). Article 222 TFEU can be seen as one of the political responses to different terrorist attacks, such as those in New York on 11 September 2001 or in Madrid on 11 March 2004, but also of natural disasters such as in particular the floods in Central Europe in 2002. The location of Article 222 TFEU in Part V TFEU (external action by the EU), despite the fact that the events dealt with in that provision occur on the territory of the MS and not externally, underlines that the sources of these threats are, at least in part, seen to be seated outside the Union.
