This Tuesday, at United Nations headquarters, Mozambique is chairing the first session of the Ad-hoc Working Group on conflict prevention and resolution mechanisms in Africa.
Mozambique chairs the body through its permanent representative to the United Nations and the Security Council.
Pedro Comissário says that the meeting aims to debate the Peace, Security and Development nexus.
This is a reflection that Mozambique’s representative to the United Nations says is increasingly relevant for many African states.
Pedro Comissário was speaking to the Mozambican press in New York at a briefing on the working week of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Verónica Macamo, at the United Nations headquarters.
Recently, the Ad-hoc Working Group on Conflict Prevention and Resolution in Africa was at the headquarters of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where it discussed with the organisation’s Peace and Security Council questions about the conflicts taking place in some countries on the continent.
