96 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, received Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, President of Somalia. The meeting took place the day of the donors' conference "A New Deal for Somalia" where the EC was pledging 650 million euro to support the country.
During the joint press conference José Manuel Barroso highlighted that this conference was a recognition of the important progress made by Somalia in 2013. He added that it was also a proof of the EU’s commitment to the future of the country and a sign of confidence that the whole international community was sending to the Somali people. He concluded by saying that Somalia's accession to the Cotonou Agreement opened a new chapter in the relations between the country and the EU.
Since 2008, the EU had provided more than 1.2 billion euro (521 million euro in development aid and 697 million euro in security and counter-piracy) to support the Somali peoples' basic needs and to improve the country's security.
