Summing up : Malta, European Leaders Conference 2011
At the conclusion of this historic conference assessing “A New Vision for Cooperation Between Europe and Africa and the Culture of Peace,” we propose that the relationship of Europe and Africa be fostered, for the sake of peace and development, through mutual respect, dialogue, and “people to people” interaction, guided by the principle of living for the sake of others. In this way, we can build a culture of peace.
Just as Malta has sustained its neutrality under many trials and embraced its neighbors to the north and south, Europe and Africa should hold to a relationship that recognizes their common interest in cooperation for prosperity and peace. By engaging in ongoing, constructive dialogue both Europeans and Africans can achieve greater awareness, understanding, and appreciation of one another.
