Juncker heads the European Commission, the European Union’s executive. The bloc has designated 2015 as the European Year for Development.

“They talked about their mutual goal to increase the level of development aid … and on the post-Millennium Development Goals, looking into the future,” commission spokeswoman Natasha Bertaud said after the meeting in Brussels.

The international community adopted the UN Millennium Development Goals in 2000, including a commitment to halve the proportion of hungry people in the world in the period from 1990 to 2015.
