00:00:48 Soundbite by commissioner Georgieva (English): On two occasions I have visited Niger, in 2010 and earlier this year because of droughts causing massive food and nutrition crisis which we overcame thanks to our joint efforts, the efforts of the international community and your government, and I saw much in Niger's response that left me deeply impressed and I was particularly impressed by the honesty and determination of you mister president and of each and every member of your government when discussing tough and complex challenges such as strike for food security under the deep shadow of climate change, population growth and regional insecurity and i am pleased to see in the economic and social development plan for 2012-2015 the same honesty in assessing the challenges ahead of you and the same determination to act upon them. 00:01:11

00:02:09 Soundbite by commissioner Georgieva (English): Niger is and will remain one of the most important partners. In other words, you are a beneficiary of this agenda for change. Why? Because there is a real scope for making progress on economic development and meeting the NBGs. But also because our views and objectives are converging on fundamental values on include development, democracy, human rights, the rule of law and good governance. We will particularly continue to stress your efforts to address food security. In other words, we are your partner for the "3N", you can count on us. We have already provided 40 millions euros for this specifically and we are looking for ways to increase our support. 00:00:50

00:03:08 Soundbite by commissioner Georgieva (English): the EU has taken a clear long term commitment to address the insecurity and malnutrition in the Sahel. And we believe that "agir sahel", the focus on resilience, is the way to go. And we count on you Mister President to lead regionally in this effort. Before I conclude Mister president i would like to make a very personal note to thank you for your care to the 5 humanitarian workers that were kidnapped. You met with them. Unfortunately one of their colleagues died during the abdication. This is an indication of how unfortunately dangerous humanitarian work is and I do appreciate your effort, your signal that you are sending that security of these workers who are risking their lives to save the lives of others is your priority and let me finish by saying that we are your partner, we have been determined, dedicated partner and we will continue to be so. Thank you. (Applause) 00:01:04
