The next African Union summit is to take place from the 25th of June to the 2nd of July in Nouakchott, Mauritania.

Preparations for the continental event are underway as an AU delegation arrived in Nouakchott to assess the hosting of the summit.

The 31st AU summit is of great importance for Morocco. Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat is to present a «detailed report», as he promised in January, on resolution 653 adopted during the AU 29th summit, hosted on the 3rd and 4th of July 2017 in Addis Ababa.

The above-mentioned resolution touches upon the «measures and initiatives» the Chadian politician «will take in partnership with the United Nations only on the Western Sahara conflict», says resolution 653.

Moussa Faki had already discussed the subject with the Algerian officials and the Mauritanian President Mohammed Ould Abdelaziz.
