Appointment of Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma as chairperson of the African Union Commission (October 16, 2012)
As she assumes her duties as chairperson of the African Union Commission, we renew the warm congratulations to Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma that the foreign minister had offered her when she was elected to that position. This is the first time a woman holds this prestigious office. France will support Ms. Dlamini-Zuma in her efforts to achieve the continent’s objectives regarding peace and development.
Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius met with Ms. Dlamini-Zuma on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. He reiterated our support for a strong Africa, with continental institutions enabling it to fully play its role in the international system and an African Union mobilized to work for peace, security and regional integration.
