Libya on Friday reiterated Africa’s position that the continent should be given two permanent seats with all privileges, including the veto, on the United Nations Security Council and five non-permanent seats.
Speaking in Addis Ababa after the meeting of the African Union Committee of 10 on the United Nations and its institutions, the Libyan Foreign Minister, Dr Ali Triki Triki said Africa was committed to its resolution on the UN system reform issued during the 5th African Union summit held in July 2005 in Sirte, Libya, and would negotiate with the UN on that basis.
Triki told the meeting which was attended by the Libyan leader Colonel Mouammar Khadafi that Africa remained attached to the decisions of the Sirte Summit, noting that the continent’s rights were infringed upon by the UN system.
The Committee of 10 on the reform of the UN and its institutions is composed of Libya, Algeria, Senegal, Congo, Uganda, Equatorial Guinea, Zambia, Kenya, Namibia and Sierra Leone.
