...In Sudan, the EU will work for the full and rapid implementation of the Darfur Peace Agreement (DPA) as a precondition for lasting peace and security in Darfur and an end to the suffering of millions of people in Darfur…Together with other partners in the international community, the EU will continue to provide support to the African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS), taking into account the new tasks arising from the DPA, and the need to ensure a smooth transition to a UN led operation in Darfur...

...the EU calls upon all political forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to continue pursuing their path of peaceful and democratic change in the run-up to the elections, starting on July 30. Building on the EU's long-standing engagement in the DRC, the EU will deploy the military operation EUFOR RD Congo, in response to a request from the United Nations, designed to provide support to MONUC in certain situations. For the same purpose, the EU's police mission in Kinshasa (EUPOL Kinshasa) will be reinforced. The EU will continue to support the ongoing Security Sector Reform through its mission EUSEC RDC, as well as new initiatives to ensure good governance, transparency and a sound post-transition and reconstruction strategy. The ongoing process of securing regional stability through the early holding of the second Summit of the Great Lakes Conference has the full support of the EU.”
