Czech Republic Hails Morocco’s Return to the African Union

The Czech Republic hailed the return of Morocco to the African Union (AU), noting that the Kingdom’s reintegration into the AU will contribute to foster stability, security and development in the continent, Czech foreign affairs ministry said on Friday.

The reintegration of the Kingdom “will further strengthen African unity and the structures of the African Union in order to enable it to fulfill its role in achieving the economic and political integration of member countries and foster security and stability in a spirit of consensus and partnership,” the ministry pointed out in a statement.

The Czech Republic will “continue its commitment to support African efforts within a unified continental organization comprising all African countries and to broaden the scope of cooperation with the Union to promote the stability and the development of the continent,” the statement added.

An overwhelming majority of African countries on Monday voted in favor of Morocco’s return to the African Union (AU), during the 28th Summit of African Heads of State and Government held in Addis Ababa.
