The European Union (EU) has announced a new support of 165 million euros to drought-affected countries in the Horn of Africa. An EU delegation led by Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the EU, on Friday met and held talks with the new Chairperson of AU Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat at the AU Headquarters in Ethiopia's capital Adds Ababa. The two regional organizations told the press after their meeting that they have discussed ways of further deepening their partnership. The chairperson of the AU Commission said the pan-African bloc coordinates cooperation with EU in light of the continent's 50-year development agenda and its 10-year action plan.
