February 3, 2016
African leaders unanimously approved on Sunday two initiatives proposed by Egypt on climate change in the continent, during the African Union summit held in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, the Egyptian state-run news agency MENA reported.
Egypt's president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi set off Friday to the Ethiopian capital to attend the summit.
He is the Coordinator of the Committee of African Heads of State and Government on Climate Change (CAHOSCC).
The president presented a report on Sunday in the 26th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the Union outlining the outcomes of the UN Climate Conference (COP21) that took place late 2015 in Paris, where Egypt assumed the role of negotiator on behalf of the African continent.
