Visit of Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, President of Yemen, to José Manuel Barroso

17 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, received Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, President of Yemen. During the joint press conference, José Manuel Barroso highlighted that good progress had been achieved since Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi took office in February 2012. He particularly welcomed the decision to establish the National Dialogue – an essential instrument to ensure a Yemeni-led, inclusive transition, saying that it was the right step in the right direction. The President also called on all parties and political forces in Yemen to play a constructive role in the country's transition process.
The EU had shown strong support for the transition in financial terms. €170 million had been pledged for the period 2012-2014 in support of short-term needs which aimed at key areas such as governance, social welfare, health, and food security. €40 million from this were mobilised to address immediate humanitarian needs in 2012 – malnutrition, food insecurity and displaced people. José Manuel Barroso encouraged Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi to develop co-operation mechanisms with civil society and the private sector which would ensure the success of EU-assisted programmes.
