Declaration by the Presidency on behalf of the European Union on Kenya

 

The European Union welcomes the agreement between Kenyan President Kibaki and

opposition leader Odinga on the formation of a Coalition Government. As partners in a

Coalition Government, the leaders of Kenya show their commitment to work together in

good faith to promote the greater interests of their nation as a whole.

The Coalition Government provides the means for the leaders of Kenya to proceed with the

national reconciliation and dialogue agreed upon on 28 February. The EU looks forward to

working with the new Government of Kenya, and states its readiness to support it in the

implementation of a coherent and far-reaching reform agenda, to address the fundamental

root causes of recurrent conflict and to create a better, more secure and more prosperous

Kenya.
