Declaración de Djibloho

The Fifth Consultative Summit of the Committee of Ten Heads of State and Government of the African Union on United Nations Reforms, known as C-10, concluded with the Djibloho Declaration, reinforcing Africa’s commitment to overcoming the lack of representation on the United Nations Security Council.

The closing ceremony, which took place on 24 November in the Djibloho conference room, marked the end of three days of meetings of C-10 co-chairs and experts. This consultative summit, held in the City of La Paz-Oyala, provided Africa with the opportunity to remind the world of the importance of full adherence to the rights, opportunities and considerations inherent in membership in an international organization.

In the Djibloho Declaration, African leaders highlighted the urgent need to address Africa’s lack of representation in the UN Security Council, an issue that has persisted for 18 years without significant progress. The importance of Africa being treated with respect was stressed and the UN was urged to create a plan for Security Council reform.

The President of Equatorial Guinea, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, host of the summit, expressed his country’s special commitment to achieving the C-10 objectives for the benefit of Africa. African leaders recognized the work of the C-10 Coordinator, H.E. Julius Maada Bio, in achieving the objectives of the African Common Position on council reform.

The summit was attended by the Representative of the UN Secretary General, Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, who thanked the President of Equatorial Guinea for his altruistic spirit in hosting the summit and seeking solutions to African problems, especially representation in the Council of Security.

In his reflections, the Chairman of the African Union Commission, H.E. Moussa Faki Mahamat, expressed the hope that the deliberations will focus on advancing the commitment of the AU Commission of Ten Heads of State and Government project to address African problems.

The Djibloho Declaration reaffirms Africa’s commitment to correcting historical injustice and strengthening its voice at the United Nations. The African leaders appreciated the hospitality and excellent facilities provided by Equatorial Guinea during the summit.

The Embassy of Equatorial Guinea in Brussels thanks the international community for its interest in African affairs and reiterates Equatorial Guinea’s commitment to the search for just and equitable solutions for the African continent, such as this Djibloho Declaration.
