Foreign Ministers in favor of Sahel strategy

At the Foreign Affairs Council on Monday, ministers endorsed the Sahel strategy presented by the High Representative and the European Commission. They reiterated that “security and development cannot be separated; improving the security situation is integral to economic growth and the reduction of poverty in the region”. The Council is in favor of the strategy’s proposal to initially focus on Mali, Mauretania and Niger and on four development strands, namely development, good governance and internal conflict resolution, security and rule of law, and countering violent extremism. Ministers also stressed their commitment to continue working in partnership with regional and international bodies such as the African Union and ECOWAS to work towards the defined objectives. The Council also expressed its “continued deep concern about the political, security, development and humanitarian situation in Somalia, including the resulting increase in the number of displaced people.”
