The AU Peace and Security Council will gather in Morocco for the first time after last year’s Rabat seminar stressed the need for reformation in the Council.
Rabat – The Peace and Security Council of African Union (AU) will gather in the Moroccan seaside town of Skhirat on Monday, June 24, as announced last week by Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
According to the ministry’s statement, the three-day gathering will review the peace-building actions in Africa and the Council’s working plan to tackle the challenges of crisis management and conflict alleviation in the region.
This will be the first meeting of the AU on Moroccan soil since last year when Morocco organized a seminar on “improving the working methods by the AU Peace and Security Council.”
The seminar took place on May 9, 2018, in Rabat and
prioritized the need to reform the council by improving its credibility and efficiency in the face of the threats Africa is currently facing concerning its peace and stability.
The gathering in Skhirat will be attended by the Council’s 15-member-states committee of Algeria, Angola, Burundi, Djibouti, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Togo, Zimbabwe, and Morocco.
