The United States of America supports the entry of the African Union into the G20 as the twenty-first member of the organisation.
The confirmation was made by the US President, Joe Biden, during the Business Forum held in the framework of the United States of America-African Leaders Summit.
In a first reaction to the White House proposal, on the accession of the African Union to the G20, the President of the Republic, Filipe Nyusi, said it was an opportunity that should be given to the continent.
“Apart from resources that should be shared in their exploitation and their transformation which is important, we have climate problems, climate change that the world is experiencing. These debates must be made at these moments. There is no moment where the economy is discussed without addressing the changes, because the unbridled exploitation of nature in itself harms and therefore it is an opportunity. I think that this position that is being taken, may have been late but we believe that it should not only be statistics, but a concrete matter of what will happen and should happen, for the good, not only of Africa but for everyone,” he said.
The African Union should join the G20 at its next meeting.
