Minister Attaf takes part in meeting of African States members’ Group of Security Council

Minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad Ahmed Attaf took part Sunday, in Addis Ababa, in an inter-ministerial meeting of the Group of African States members of the United Nations Security Council (A3), which currently includes Algeria, Sierra Leone and Mozambique, on the sidelines of the 37th ordinary session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU).

The meeting was a renewed opportunity to reaffirm the commitment to carry on coordinating positions and unifying joint efforts to preserve the interests of African countries and continent, and defend the different just causes in Africa and worldwide, given the results of “Oran process”, which has a key role in consolidating Africa’s voice internationally, particularly within the Security Council.

In this regard, the three ministers agreed on a series of practical proposals aimed at bolstering consultation and coordination at all levels for a positive African influence within the Security Council.

They also agreed to further boost the issue of reform of this main body of the United Nations, based on Africa’s unified stance.

The Palestinian cause was the subject of in-depth talks during which the the members of the group reaffirmed their backing for Algeria’s draft resolution, with a view to activating the provisional measures of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), so as to halt the Zionist aggression and end the genocide against the brotherly Palestinian people.

In a speech on this occasion, the minister highly applauded the progress made in boosting coordination between African States within the Security Council and their influence within this crucial UN body.

He called for ‘preserving this dynamic, as part of the joint African action, in supporting just causes worldwide, chiefly the Palestinian issue and the decolonizing in Western Sahara.
