"This was the first time for me to chair the FAC council in the format of Development Council.  The EU is a key player in development. Development is a key instrument in prevention of crisis and conflict.  It is also a promoter of human rights and democracy and a tool to support post conflict reconstruction. The upcoming report by EU coordinator and Commissioner for Humanitarian aid Stylianides on Ebola has been discussed by Ministers today and will be transmitted to the European Council.
