AU Summit Slams Trump

The 28th Summit of the African Union ended early Wednesday, as it criticized US President Donald Trump’s ban on immigrants and refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries. President Alpha Conde of Guinea, who was elected new chairman of the African Union, expressed solidarity with Somalia and Sudan–two countries whose citizens are affected by the travel ban, Anadolu Agency reported. Iran, Libya, Iraq, Syria and Yemen are also on the list. Conde said the summit “showed the solidarity spirit of the continent to the world”, mulling allegations that Morocco’s readmission to the union may divide the union.  Morocco was readmitted to the African Union on Monday following an absence of more than three decades.  Chad’s Foreign Minister Moussa Faki Mahamat was elected on Monday to replace Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma who stepped down after four years at the helm of the African Union Commission.  Dlamini-Zuma had expressed concern about Trump’s presidency, saying it “could affect the global advances made in combating climate change”.
