Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra made a statement on his social media account after his country hosted the 8th Peace and Security in Africa High-Level Meeting.

Expressing that the meeting to be held will unite and strengthen the voice of Africa, Lamamra stated that the meeting will also increase the joint efforts and efforts in favor of Africa.

The Algerian Foreign Minister emphasized that the marginalization that the African continent is exposed to at the level of international decision-making bodies should also end.

There are three African countries that are members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). In addition to Kenya and Tunisia, Niger, which held the term presidency in December, is also in the UNSC.

Algeria has called for two permanent seats at the UNSC to end the “historical injustice” against the African continent.

The meeting, according to a statement from the Algerian foreign ministry, will last three days.

It is held with the participation of high level, in particular the ministers of the member countries of the Peace and Security Council of the African Union (AU) as well as the African members of the United Nations Security Council in addition to experts and high representatives of African organizations, the UN, and the Arab League.
