President Edgar Lungu is tomorrow expected in Equatorial Guinea to attend the Summit of Heads of State of the African Union Committee of Ten (C10) on the reforms of the United Nations (UN) Security Council.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba told journalists at a media briefing in Lusaka today that the C10 Summit will be preceded by a Ministerial and Ambassadorial segment starting today.
Kalaba said the C10 Summit will map out strategies to further expand and intensify advancement of the African common position in the UN Security Council as agreed by the AU Ministerial meeting held in Swaziland in March, 2005.
He said the importance of ensuring that Africa takes its rightful position within the decision making process of the UN Security Council cannot be overemphasized.
The Committee of Ten comprises Algeria, Libya, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Kenya, Uganda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Namibia and Zambia.
