00:01:34 Soundbite (in ENGLISH) Andris Piebalgs: Well I think that first of all we focus on the main challenge areas, Great lakes, what happens in negotiations and how the solutions could look and also preparation for donor conference for Mali tomorrow. I think it goes very constructive, in good spirit, and I always get quite positive good feedback from our partner about EU engagement, EU support. So I believe that the partnership between two continents, are really strong, more stronger than sometimes it seems. 00:00:07

00:01:57 Soundbite (in ENGLISH) Andris Piebalgs: Definitely I am satisfied but at the same time you really would like to have more financial means in your hands so I really…again for developed countries to increase support for developing countries because, the money is so crucially needed in the times of change, stabilization and challenges. And if I see that globally community today is far away from 0.7 of GNI for development Aid, I would say, well it’s a shame. We could really do a lot of things but we could avoid a lot of problems as well. 00:00:40
