ADDIS ABABA, Sept 7 (Bernama) -- The African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) will hold their 11th joint consultative meeting on Friday at the AU Headquarters in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa, China's Xinhua news agency reported.

The meeting will deliberate on peace and security situations in Africa, particularly on the situations in Somalia, South Sudan and the Lake Chad Basin.

The meeting will be preceded by informal consultations on Thursday, which focuses on the partnership between the AU and the UN, funding for AU peace and security activities, and post-conflict peace building.


The UNSC members on Wednesday arrived in Addis Ababa, capital of the East African country, which co-chairs the meeting together with Botswana, chair of the AUPSC for the Month.

Head of Ethiopian Mission to the UN and President of UNSC for the Month of September, Tekeda Alemu, said the consultative meeting would further strengthen and deepen the cooperation between the two organisations.

The meeting is also expected to discuss ways to further strengthen financial support to peace keeping operations.
