African Union - Presentation of border archives (Addis Ababa, November 29, 2013)

November 29 in Addis Ababa, France is presenting the African Union with digitized copies of French archives relating to African borders. These documents concern 45 treaties and maps of countries in West, North and East Africa during the period of 1845-1956.

In so doing, we want to show our support for the program launched by the African Union in 2007 aimed at facilitating the delimitation and demarcation of African borders and encouraging cross-border cooperation.

France is strongly committed to the consolidation of African borders in order to contribute to the continent’s peace, security and development.
