Tunisia determined to support efforts to strengthen African Union

Tunisia is determined to support efforts to strengthen the African Union and its various institutions and structures, said Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui in an address delivered on behalf of President Beji Caid Essebsi at the 30th Ordinary Summit of the African Union (AU).

The 30th Ordinary Session of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of the African Union is organised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on January 28-29, under the theme “Overcoming corruption: a sustainable option for transforming Africa.”

The expected reform, he added, must be based on sound principles that ensure efficiency and meet the goals set by the AU.

Jhinaoui laid emphasis on the imperative of a participative and democratic reform process to which all member countries will contribute, while considering their real willingness to develop the AU.

In this regard, he called for the revision of the executive system’s management methods, the decision-making procedures and criteria for the selection of potential candidates for work within the various structures of the AU. It is also a question of optimising the resources of the pan-African organisation and of adopting the solutions to help the member States contribute to the revival of the common African action.

On the fringes of his participation in this event, Khemaies Jhinaoui had talks with Maldives Foreign Minister Mohamed Assem and Burkina Faso’s Alpha Barry.

He also met with his Libyan, Algerian and Moroccan opposite members.
