Africa Day: Egyptian Foreign Ministry launches a comprehensive national program to highlight Egypt’s belonging to Africa

The celebration of Africa Day this year is of particular importance since the month of May coincides with Egypt’s presidency of the Security Council, through its membership in the Council to represent the African continent during the years 2016 and 2017, and also intersects with Egypt’s representation of North African countries in the African Union’s Peace and Security Council during the period from 2016 to 2018.

Message from Chairperson of the African Union Commission, H.E. Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma on the Commemoration of “AFRICA DAY” 25 MAY 2016

Fellow Africans on the Continent and in the Diaspora, our friends and supporters across the globe, on this historic day of May 25, celebrating the 53rd Anniversary of the foundation of our beloved Continental Organization, the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), now the African Union (AU), allow me to extend my warmest and most sincere best wishes for Africa Day as we celebrate continued progress by all daughters and sons of our beloved continent.
