EU: Trilateral relationship between UN-AU-EU in making

The European Union reaffirmed its strong engagement with the United Nations, particularly in Africa where a trilateral relationship between the UN, African Union (AU) and EU is already in the making to enhance regional cooperation. The statement came as the acting head of EU delegation, Pedro Serrano, spoke to an open Security Council debate on the cooperation between the United Nations and regional and sub-regional organizations in maintaining international peace and security. "A genuine trilateral UN-AU-EU relationship is already in the making," Serrano said, adding that the EU maintains a high level of engagement with the UN, especially in Africa. The EU has deployed two military operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in support of the UN mission in the DRC (MONUC), Serrano said. Serrano reaffirmed EU's support for the regional integration agenda as a means to achieve economic growth and peace where he said the EU has developed regional strategies in partnership with all world regions. "The challenges facing the international community -- poverty, conflict, terrorism, non-proliferation, climate change, are closely interlinked and of a magnitude that requires collective action," Serrano said.
