African Union (AU) highlights need to eradicate conflicts within Africa
We must work together to ensure that our efforts are complementary so that we maximize the impact of the policies, statement said.
The African Union (AU) urged the member states today to seek appropriate strategies to deal with the conflicts within their territories, which cause worsening humanitarian conditions in the continent.
According to a statement from the AU, only last year 15 thousand people were displaced every day, 75 percent of them due to armed clashes in their places of origin.
We must work together to ensure that our efforts are complementary so that we maximize the impact of the policies; it is the only way to effectively address the enormous challenge of peace and security in Africa and to silence weapons, said the statement of the AU.
Coordinated visits to zones of violence will be reinforced in the future, in conjunction with international organizations such as the UN, since, in the opinion of the entity, addressing the context directly on the ground is an effective way to assess the magnitude of the situation and respond with effective solutions. Peace Support Operations can play a crucial role in achieving long-term stability, the agency argued, as per Prensa Latina.
Therefore, it is important to consider the financial sustainability of the same through the strengthening of cooperation with stakeholders, which in turn will ensure proper administration of the resources allocated, concluded the text released by the AU.
