Angola and the African Union (AU) discussed Thursday the preparation of the Extraordinary Summit on Combat Terrorism and Unconstitutional Changes in the Political Regime in Africa, proposed by the Angolan President of Republic, João Lourenço.
This was during a meeting held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which gathered the Permanent Representative of Angola to the AU, Francisco da Cruz, and the African Union Commissioner for Political, Peace and Security, Bankole Adeoye.
In a note, the Permanent Representation of Angola to the AU states that, on the occasion, Bankole Adeoye praised Angola for the vision that President João Lourenço had in drawing the continent’s attention to reflect and fight terrorism and unconstitutional regime changes in Africa.
These are changes through coups d’état that affect the objectives of the AU’s Agenda 2063, mainly on the silencing of weapons and the economic development of the continent.
