Background The implosion of Mali could have devastating consequences for neighbouring states such as Niger, Mauritania and Senegal, Louis Michel, ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly Co-President, said on Monday, at the opening of the Assembly’s 23rd session in Horsens. Addressing the deputies, Mr Michel also warned that the current crisis in the Sahel region could not be solved without both political and military intervention.

The representatives of the 78 ACP states who, under the Cotonou Agreement, must be members of Parliament, meet their 78 European Parliament counterparts in plenary session for one week twice a year. The Joint Parliamentary Assembly meets alternately in an ACP country and an EU country. The institution is governed by common, democratic rules.
