Netherlands to end development relationship with seven African countries

The Netherlands is ending its development relationship with seven African countries. The partnership with the DR Congo, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Egypt, Tanzania, Zambia and South Africa will be terminated, Dutch newspaper Trouw is reporting. The new list of partner countries contains 15 countries, ten of which are African. But uncertainty about the final composition of the new partner list remains, since the list is only a draft that has yet to be agreed upon by the cabinet. And after this agreement, the list will be sent to Parliament for consideration. Sjoera Dikkers is a Member of Parliament for the Labour party, and she is not happy with the new selection. “First of all, why don’t we want to support the Egyptian people in their transition to a democratic state? I really hope that this government is not proposing something like that.”
