Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi on Thursday asked Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, in Japan’s capacity as a member of the G7 group of most developed countries, to look at the question of the proliferation of terrorism and wars in Africa.
Nyusi proposed cooperation between the G7 and the African Union in order to staunch this phenomenon.
Nyusi made this request because, as from the end of May this year, Japan will hold the rotating presidency of the G7, and will thus be in a better condition to influence the most developed economies to look with attention at the conflicts in Africa.
The Mozambican leader made his request in Maputo during a meeting with Kishida, who is on a one day working visit to Mozambique, intended to strengthen bilateral cooperation and increase economic ties between the two countries.
In the talks with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Nyusi shared with him the political, economic and social situation of the country, and the situation of terrorism in Cabo Delgado province. Since Japan will chair the G7 as from the end of May, the hope is that this body should look at the proliferation of terrorism and war in Africa.
Nyusi further stressed the instability in the Sahel, and in parts of central and southern Africa, as well as the conflict in Sudan. This insecurity, he said, demands concerted and coordinated action by the various global blocks to restore peace in the regions affected by the conflicts.
