"The EU-Africa Summit should mark a change in the EU’s policies on respect for the sovereignty and right to development of the African countries and peoples, by promoting a fairer, more peaceful and more human world with a greater level of solidarity. This relationship must no longer be based on neo-colonialist ambitions or paternalistic views aimed at recovering the ground lost when the African peoples gained their national independence – after being conquered in the second half of the 20 century – and promoting interference, the military presence of the EU’s major powers, and the control and exploitation of natural resources by transnationals. This requires, for example: immediate solidarity measures to meet the most basic needs of millions of human beings; respect for national sovereignty and independence, non-interference in the internal affairs of each country and a peaceful solution to international conflicts; demilitarisation of international relations and a gradual reduction in armaments and military expenditure; equitable and fair international economic relations, rejecting the impositions of the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and World Trade Organization and the ‘Economic Partnership Agreements’ on liberalisation of trade; cancellation of foreign debt, which has already been more than paid; proper policies of cooperation and active and mutual support for development; guarantee of immigrants’ rights."@en1
