Fisheries: No agreement between Gabon and EU

Despite two days of negotiations about the terms of the next fisheries partnership agreement between Gabon and the European Union, both parties have not been able to come to an accord, reported the Gabonese government newspaper l’Union.

Negotiations blocked on one particular aspect, namely the desire of the European negotiators to include a human rights aspect into the debate, said the newspaper, which Gabonese negotiators declined. They did not understand the reason of including this clause into the conclusion of an agreement in the fisheries sector of which they don’t see the link with politics, according to the newspaper.

Another point of conflict is that Gabonese negotiators consider the EU contribution (465 million FCFA, around 715,000 dollars) too low.

The current agreement will expire at the end of December 2011. The two parties have therefore decided to meet for another round, said the newspaper.
