World leaders have pledged to boost support for measures to fight piracy, terrorism and political instability in Somalia, after a meeting in London.
The conference agreed a seven-point plan promising more humanitarian aid, support for African Union peacekeepers and better international co-ordination.
In a final communique, the 55 countries and organisations gathered in London said they would:
- back the handover of power from the transitional government to an inclusive administration by August
- provide more support for African Union peacekeepers
- better co-ordinate humanitarian aid, shifting focus to long-term needs
- crack down on piracy by expanding on agreements to bring suspects to trial in countries away from Somalia
