IGAD –EU to strengthen cooperation in the Horn of Africa

Following the fifth Ministerial Meeting of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) in Eastern Africa and the EU, held in Adis Abebam,Ethiopia, both parties agreed to grow ties and work together for stability in the Horn of Africa. In particular, they discussed the IGAD's revitalization and reform process, as well as the EU Strategic Framework for the region.
In response to the intertwined nature of the challenges, both sides underscored the need for comprehensive approaches. Notably, the two parties discussed the follow up of the London Somalia conference and urged Somali leaders to take all necessary political steps in view of the end of the current transition in August, as agreed in London, and establishing a new political setting in the country. They also spoke of the development of an inclusive political and administrative arrangement in the newly-liberated areas.
According to a joint IGAD-EU communiqué, the meeting was co-chaired by Deputy PM, Minister of Foreign Affairs and current Chairperson of the IGAD Council of Ministers, Hailemariam Desalegn,  as well as the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Denmark Villy Sovndal, who attended on behalf of the EU High Representative Catherine Ashton.
