Cracks appear in EU-ACP unity at Cotonou meeting in Dakar

Dissent was heard at the high-level meeting in Dakar last week of the EU and the 79-member states of the African, Caribbean and Pacific group. At stake during the five days of meetings outside the Senegalese capital was a successor agreement to the Cotonou agreement, which expires in 2020. Along with the EU Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, leaders and representatives from some of the poorest countries in the world were present for talks on economic, political and development cooperation. Although no formal conclusions have yet been issued, a preliminary statement admits that the council repeated previous demands that the EU show more “flexibility” towards the poorer states in the remaining negotiations.
