JOHANNESBURG - Minister of State, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Ramtane Lamamra, said Friday in Johannesburg (South Africa) several security issues are to be discussed at the 27th Ordinary Session of the Executive Council of the African Union (AU).
In a statement on the sidelines of the session, Lamamra said the security issues are "linked to terrorism, piracy and transnational crime," adding that the findings will be submitted to the 25th meeting of the Conference of Heads of State and Government.
The agenda of the Executive Council meeting also includes the examination of "political issues, including crises and institutional issues related to the support of joint African action within the AU organs" and in the African groups activating in UN."
The Foreign Ministers will also examine at their behind-the-camera meeting on Friday the first 10-year plan of the implementation of Africa's Agenda 2063 and the draft budget of the Organization for the year 2016.
