Visit of François Bozize, President of the Central African Republic, to Louis Michel, in the framework of the Donors' Roundtable on the Central African Republic
The European Commission hosted the Donors' Roundtable on the Central African Republic to mobilize financial resources for implementation of the country's development programmes and to support its efforts to restore peace. During the conference, Louis Michel, Member of the EC in charge of Development and Humanitarian Aid, made a call upon the intenational community to provide support and remembered that Europe has already mobilised 3 million Euros to support the UN-mandated multidimensional presence. This force will be deployed in north-eastern Central African Republic and eastern Chad to help protect civilians and facilitate humanitarian aid, as the CAR has been suffering from the fighting in neighbouring Darfur. The EU is also participating in this force with a military presence.
In the framework of this event, Louis Michel held a bilateral meeting with François Bozizé, President of the Central African Republic. PHOTOSHOTLIST
