AU Holds Peace and Security Meeting

African Union officials attending the one day meeting of peace and security Tuesday called for an urgent heads of state meeting to discuss effective ways of responding to continental crises.
Speaking at the opening of the one-day session Rwanda’s foreign affairs minister Louise Mushikiwabo warned that African countries risk being left out of conflict resolution processes if they don’t take a lead when crises break out.
Most of the speakers at the session also said that it is already evident that non-African countries; Britain, France and USA, have ignored the role of African countries in taking part in finding peace in troubled countries, such as the ongoing Libyan crisis.
