UAE participates in the African Union Summit for the first time

posted on 03/07/2011: 715 views


Malabo - Equatorial Guinea - The UAE took part in the ordinary session of the 17th African Union Summit in Malabo.

The UAE joined the African Union earlier this year as an observer member, thus becoming the first Gulf state and the second Arab country to join the African organisation.

Dr. Youssef Essa Hassan Sabri, UAE Ambassador to Ethiopia and the country's Permanent Representative to the African Union heads the Official UAE delegation to the Summit. The accession of the UAE to African Union is considered one of the country's major gains at the international forums, as the African Union plays an important role in the international arena in general and on the African arena in particular.

The Summit, with the participation of the Heads of 53 African states and other international organisations, is being held under the theme ' Accelerating Youth Empowerment for Sustainable Development'.

UAE's accession will enable it to attend the AU summits and conferences and present topics and issues of importance that concern both UAE and Africa, thus paving way to develop UAE's relations with African countries. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
