EU-IGAD Political Dialogue Meeting

The Fourth Ministerial Meeting between the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the European Union (EU) was held in Brussels on 23 March 2010. Formally called "Ministerial Troika", the meeting, under the Lisbon Treaty, took the name of the Political Dialogue Meeting (PDM). The two parties discussed the situation in the Horn of Africa, including Sudan, Somalia and the Gulf of Aden. They also discussed IGAD's revitalization and reform process and regional integration in the Horn of Africa. The EU underlined IGAD's strategic role in regional integration, peace and stability in the Horn. IGAD welcomed EU's stepped up engagement in the Horn of Africa, as agreed in the Foreign Affairs Council on 8 December 2009. The EU welcomed renewed efforts by IGAD to enhance the capacity of its Secretariat at the recent IGAD Council on 7-8 December 2009. It pointed out that more could be done in the region to cooperate on common infrastructure regional investments under the Horn of Africa Initiative.
