EU delegation leader replied that in future all assistance would be channelled through the World Bank under the supervision of EU after the establishment of the Joint Mechanism. He added that EU is prepared to obtain the services of the local non-governmental organizations in this regard.

The EU has planned to implement long term rehabilitation and reconstruction projects in the Northeastern province in addition to the short-term projects currently being implemented by the EU.
