Monday May 23, 2016 was a landmark day for the African Union and Sierra Leone.
The 10th joint consultative meeting was held between the Peace and Security Council of the AU and the Security Council of the UN.
Sierra Leone is now a member of this great body due to the dynamic leadership of His Excellency the President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma.
The meeting was significant because it commemorated a decade of the joint consultation between the two Councils. It also provided the opportunity for members of both Councils to take a strategic view at their partnership, as well as find ways to strengthen their cooperation moving forward.
The meeting was held in the spirit of the cooperation between the United Nations and the African Union in the maintenance of peace and security, an important initiative that has intensified in recent years through many collaborative efforts in conflict prevention, mediation and peacekeeping.
