The African Union (AU) on Saturday welcomed a draft resolution of the UN Security Council (UNSC) on the financing of AU-led peace support operations.

The draft resolution was tabled by the African members of the UNSC – Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea and Ethiopia.

“This important resolution for Africa represents a long standing common African position to enhance the predictability and sustainability of the financing of AU-led peace support operations, undertaken within the framework of Chapter VIII of the UN Charter and authorized by the UN Security Council,” said the AU in a statement.

The AU Peace and Security Council noted that the draft resolution is timely and balanced, and also reflects the general consensus in the UN Security Council and beyond, said the statement. Enditem
