High level meeting on the Sahel held in Brussels

The European External Action Service hosted a High level meeting on the Sahel yesterday 6 February 2014 in Brussels. Mali being chair of the international coordination platform for the Sahel, the Prime Minister of Mali HE. Tatam Ly opened the meeting while Minister for National Reconciliation and Development of the Northern Regions HE. Diarrah chaired it.
Substantial achievements have been made in the stabilization process in Mali. But lasting peace in Mali and the region will not be achieved if the root causes of the crisis in the wider Sahel Sahara region remain unaddressed either at local (north of Mali, south of Libya etc.) or regional level. A long term coordinated international engagement is needed. The goal of the High level meeting on the Sahel hosted by the EEAS was to help operationalize the international coordination platform for the Sahel and reflect on ideas and principles guiding its work.
More than 25 Ministers from the region and high level representatives of international institutions including the United Nations, the African Union, the Economic Community of West African States and others attended the meeting.
Mali is the chair of the international coordination platform for the Sahel established in Bamako on 5 November 2013 during the joint United Nations – Wold Bank – African Union – European Union – African Development Bank high level mission to the Sahel. The international coordination platform for the Sahel was established in order to review periodically peace and security developments in the region and ensure the effectiveness of the international support to national and regional efforts.
