Luanda — The African Union (AU) praised Angola's presidency of the African Ombudsman and Mediators Association (AOMA), noting that it has been enjoying the work in promoting human rights of African peoples.
The fact was expressed Friday in Luanda by the Commissioner for Political Affairs of the African Union (AU), Julia Dolly Joiner, in press statements, at the end of a meeting with the acting speaker of the National Assembly, João Lourenço.
In this sense, she said the organisation is working with African ombudsmen, in the framework of the existing memorandum for the promotion of democracy, good governance, human rights, justice and ultimately the security of the continent.
She said that she informed the acting speaker of Parliament about the objectives of her visit to Angola, embodied in the definition of strategies for the implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding between the AU and AOMA.
The commissioner for Political Affairs of the African Union (AU) is in Angola since Wednesday, to participate on June 20-25 in the meeting of the African Ombudsmen and Mediators who are analysing the implementation of the Agreement of Understanding between the African Union and AOMA.
