European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker (front) attends the opening ceremony of the 5th African Union-European Union Summit in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, on November 29, 2017.

According to him, during the summit which was held between November 28 and 29, President Buhari demonstrated the pivotal role Nigeria plays in continental affairs and in the relationship that Africa must forge with other regions of the world.

Leaders at the two-day gathering in the economic capital of Côte d'Ivoire were also to discuss economic development as a way of preventing migrants desperate for a better life from flocking to Europe.

"I think that today the security challenges we are facing, starting from radicalism and terrorism to trafficking and criminal organizations, are binding us together and there are only common solutions if you want to have effective solutions", Mogherini said.

On the other hand, Donald Tusk, president of the European Council has described what is happening in Libya as "scary", insisting that the situation "requires assistance".

Africa has 60 percent of its population under the age of 25, a demographic asset that has created a huge labor pool yet to be fully utilized, due to such hurdles as a lack of industrialization.

Presidents, who did not attend the Summit, included Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, and Mauritanian President Mohamed Abdelaziz, who was represented by his country's ambassador to Abidjan, in addition to Zimbabwe's ousted President Robert Mugabe.

The president has stressed that in addressing this human tragedy, leaders need to examine its root causes such as environmental degradation, insecurity and instability, climate change and the lack of economic opportunity.

Held under the theme of "Investing in youth for a sustainable future", the Summit aimed at promoting jobs and stability in the African continent.
