Togo chairs African Union Security and Peace Council this month

(Togo First) - Since July 1, 2019, Togo started chairing the African Union Security and Peace Council, sources close to the union revealed.

The country’s chairmanship which will close on July 31, 2019, will focus on issues related to maritime security, safety and development in Africa.

Regarding safety issues, Toba Sébadé, Representative of the African Union in Togo, will discuss conflict management and settlement with representatives of the 15 member-States of the council.

Next July 16, a meeting will be held to review the implementation of decisions taken at Maritime Safety and Security Summit held in Lomé in October 2016.

Togo’s mandate will be dedicated to light weapons trafficking across Africa, as well as the use of cluster munitions and land mines in populated areas. Sexual abuses in times of conflict will also be discussed.

Togo’s chairmanship will end with a field mission led jointly by the ECOWAS and the African Union, in Gambia, to help with the post-conflict reconstruction process in the country.
