At their meeting Thursday in Jakarta, the EU and ASEAN delegations also discussed tsunami aid.

Benita Ferrero-Waldner said, "I can promise you that the European Commission will be efficient in delivering aid, it will be rigorous in ensuring the assistance fits the real needs in each country and thus also here, and we will also be implacable in the face of any misuse and fraud."
