The European Union (EU) will allocate 183 million euros to ease the debt of 29 of the world's poorest and most vulnerable countries, including Haiti, the European Commission said in a statement.

Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nepal, Niger, Rwanda, São Tomé and Príncipe, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Tanzania, Tajikistan, Togo and Yemen.
