Africa pushes for reform of UN Security Council

| | Addis Ababa

The African Union (AU) has called upon African countries to speak with one voice as an impetus in the continent’s aspiration to get more representation at the UN Security Council.

The call by AU Commission Deputy Chairperson Thomas Kwesi Quartey came as African leaders were expected to adopt proposals for the continent to get two permanent seats at the expanded UN Security Council during their meeting on Monday and Tuesday at the 29th AU summit in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa.

“We have noticed that people are beginning to take Africa seriously because of the African Union,” Quartey was quoted as saying by Xinhua news agency.

“The more Africa is able to put its acts together and the more the continent is able to speak coherently with one voice, the more likely it is that people will be less able to ignore us,” he added.
