10:01:04 Soundbite by Catherine Ashton (in ENGLISH): Mr President, A particular strength of the European Union is its ability to respond to a crisis with a wide range of tools and instruments, short and long term, humanitarian and development, security and political. We are particularly pleased that the long-standing engagement of the European Union in Somalia and the Horn of Africa, as set out in our strategic framework for the Horn of Africa, and carried out in close co-operation with the United Nations, has contributed to the recent breakthrough in both the political process and in terms of security in that region. 00:00:35

10:01:50 Soundbite by Catherine Ashton (in ENGLISH): Our support to Mali and the Sahel should also be seen in the context of a comprehensive European engagement. The current crisis in Mali provides us with a challenging test case: the threat posed by terrorist groups is not only a threat to the existence of one country, but to the security of a region and the international community. It calls for swift and coordinated international action, for which the UN is playing a leading role. 00:00:31
