African Union: Algeria has managed to review AU’s decision on granting Israel observer status

Following vigorous diplomatic moves, Algeria has managed, through diplomatic channels, to present the decision of the AU Commission Chairman, Moussa Faki to grant Israel observer status with the pan-African organization on the agenda of the next Executive Council of the African Union (AU), to rule on the reservations expressed by member states that have rejected the membership of the Zionist entity to the continental organization.

Moussa Faki’s decision “to include reservations expressed by AU member states concerning this agreement on the agenda of the next AU Executive Council” comes following the strong position of Algerian diplomacy which pointed out that “this decision, taken without prior broad consultations with all member states, has neither the vocation nor the capacity to legitimize practices and behaviors of called new observer which are totally incompatible with the values, principles and objectives set out in the Constitutive Act of the African Union”.

“The recent decision of the Chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission to welcome a new observer under its administrative prerogatives does not alter the constant and active support of the continental organization to the just Palestinian cause,” wrote the Foreign Ministry, stressing that “the operating procedures of the AU do not allow any possibility for the eighty-seven non-African observer states to influence the positions of the continental organization, whose positions are the exclusive competence of its member states.
