The UN Peacebuilding Commission meets with key stakeholders in Addis Ababa
Members of the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) visited Addis Ababa from 7-8 December, 2017.
The objective of the visit was to further strengthen cooperation with the African Union (AU) in the areas of conflict prevention and sustaining peace in Africa. Accordingly, PBC members held meetings with the Chairperson of the AU Commission; the AU Commissioner for Peace and Security; the Special Representative of the Secretary-General to the African Union Mr. Haile Menkerios and the United Nations Liaison Team (UNLT) among other key stakeholders.
The AU Peace and Security Council also invited the PBC to brief on the latter’s activities and further discuss ways to enhance UN-AU coordination towards building and sustaining peace in Africa, particularly in countries where the PBC supports peace efforts.
