Indo-EU Summit language

I am offering a sumptuous vegetarian lunch at the Swagath Gourmet on Oak Tree Road in Iselin, NJ to the person that can explain to me what the following paragraph (taken from the Joint Statement of the EU-India Summit of 6 Novermber 2009 means:

"35. The Leaders noted with appreciation the role of Indian and European civil society and of the EU-India round table, and agreed on the need to review its role in India-EU relations and to decide on its future activities."

On one (pseudo-naive) level, I find it extremely offensive (it should be civil society that affirms (or not) the activities of politicians, not the other way around, or have I missed something?). Otherwise, I am at a complete loss. I would be grateful for any pointers. :-)
