Council conclusions on conflict prevention

The Foreign Affairs Council has adopted a set of conclusions on conflict prevention. During their recent meeting in Luxembourg, EU foreign ministers agreed on the need to strengthen early warning and partnerships with the UN, the OSCE, NATO, the World Bank, the African Union and other international actors; and to take early action to mitigate the risks of outbreak and recurrence of conflicts.

Although the Council did not adopt any firm commitments for implementation, it did agree to revisit the issue of conflict prevention by the end of 2011.
