ORAN (Algeria)- The 8th High-Level Seminar on Peace and Security in Africa opened Thursday in Oran under the theme “Support to the new African members of the UN Security Council in addressing peace and security issues in Africa.”
The three-day meeting is attended by the minister of Foreign Affairs and the National Community Abroad, Ramtane Lamamra, Tunisia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Tunisian Emigration Abroad, Chad’s minister of Foreign Affairs, African Integration and Chadians Abroad, Cherif Mahamat Zene, the deputy prime minister, minister of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia, Demeke Mekonnen Hassen, and Angola’s Minister of Foreign Relations, Antonio Tete.
Experts and representatives of the highest African authorities, the United Nations and Arab League are also taking part in the three-day seminar.
The major event will highlight the need to promote joint African action by strengthening coordination and cooperation between the African members in the UN Security Council and the members of the African Union and to make the voice of the continent heard in the Security Council.
Those efforts are aimed to effectively defend African positions on peace and security issues and bring an end to marginalization of Africa in international decision-making bodies, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
