Meeting of foreign ministers

8. May 2006

EU and Africa plan common strategy

To implement the EU-Africa strategy adopted in December 2005, a meeting of the EU Troika under the Austrian presidency with their African counterparts was held on 8 May 2006. The subjects covered were democracy, development, ecological sustainability, human rights, trade, social cohesion and migration. The EU offered the AU financial support to achieve these goals. The African Union and the EU also strive for peace and put special focus on the AU's peace mission in Sudan. The EU urged all rebel groups that had not signed the peace accord, to do so as soon as possible.
