Today, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission (HR/VP), Josep Borrell, accompanied by the Director and Head of Service of Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI), Peter M. Wagner, participated in the handover ceremony of the European Peace Facility (EPF)-funded equipment.
Mozambique is benefitting from a EUR 89 million package of EPF measures to strengthen the capacities of the Mozambican Armed Forces to restore safety and security in Mozambique’s northern Cabo Delgado province. This is ensured through the supplies of material to the Armed Forces, such as vehicles, as well as individual equipment for soldiers.
The EU is also supporting Mozambique with crisis response and conflict prevention actions aiming at restoring stability and peace in Cabo Delgado and surrounding provinces. In this area, the EU is working on peacebuilding, including in respect to natural resources related conflicts, mediation, and actions to prevent and count violent extremism and support the rule of law.
