Stronger cooperation needed on migration with ACP countries

The foreign affairs ministers of the 27 EU Member States and 78 African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, met on 31 May 2011 in Brussels. Acting as co-chair of the meeting, János Martonyi said at the subsequent press conference, the countries have agreed to increase dialogues on migration, and to discuss the situation in South Sudan. The European Union and the African, Caribbean and Pacific countries (ACP), will pay special attention to issues related to migration, especially visa issues, migrants’ bank transfers and returning migrants, Minister for Foreign Affairs János Martonyi said, on the 36th session of the EU–ACP Council of Ministers. The foreign minister stressed that presently, migration is a very sensitive question in the EU, so problems will be resolved only if the EU strengthens its cooperation with the affected countries. “We will keep the question on the agenda and continue the work,” said the minister. This was confirmed by ACP Secretary-General Mohamed Ibn Chambas, acting as the other co-chair of the meeting. Mr Ibn Chambas said that a working group created specifically to this purpose, will regularly debate current issues in the future, in order to prepare them for early execution, even as soon as in 2012.
