The last African Union Summit was a great success
African Union Summit - Remarks to the press by Mr. François Delattre, Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations - 3 February 2017
The fact that the Secretary General himself comes to brief the Security Council after the African Union Summit says a lot about the fact that the partnership between the UN and the African Union is one of the backbones of international peace and security, more than ever. This partnership is also critically important with respect to sustainable development. The last African Union Summit was a great success, unanimously considered as such and again the partnership with the UN is one of the backbones of today’s peace and security architecture. And so the fact that for the first time the Secretary General comes to brief us with respect to this partnership is very important.
