BRUSSELS, Nov 16 (KUNA) -- The European Parliament (EP) called Thursday for a new EU-Africa strategy to give more impetus to cooperation between European and Africa.
In a resolution adopted by 419 votes to 97, the EP said economic, migratory and social problems, coupled with protracted crises, require new responses and better cooperation between the African Union and the EU.
It caled on the EU to step up European peace and security actions, in close cooperation with African and international partners.
A high-level conference on Africa, hosted by the European Parliament, will take place in Brussels on 22 November, in the run-up to the Africa-EU summit at the end of November in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. (end)
