The President of the Republic, Filipe Nyusi, has been in New York since the morning of Monday, 27 March, in the United States of America (USA), to fulfil a five-day working agenda at the headquarters of the United Nations (UN). The trip was made in the context of Mozambique’s presidency of the Security Council (SC).
The Head of State is leading, as of today, Tuesday 28 March, a debate on terrorism and violent extremism, in which he will present the country’s positions on these issues and share them with the SC members and guests, taking into account the importance that they have been taking in global terms.
“A debate is also scheduled on the impact of development policies on the implementation of the continental “Silencing the Arms” initiative [high-level panel co-organised by Mozambique, in partnership with CHATAM House, the United Nations Development Programme and the African Union Commission, at the February summit in Addis Ababa].
On the agenda for Filipe Nyusi is also a “meeting with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, and with the Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Achim Steiner,” detailed the statement from the presidency.
Mozambique took over on 1 March, and for 30 days, the rotating presidency of the United Nations Security Council, a circumstance that resulted from the unanimous election, also historic, of the country as a non-permanent member of the body for the biennium 2023-2024, an act carried out on 9 June 2022.
