Luanda - Foreign Minister Téte António said Sunday in Luanda that the African Union should opt for the principle of peaceful resolution of conflicts to silence the weapons on the continent.

The head of Angolan diplomacy expressed this standing when speaking on behalf of the Angolan statesman, João Lourenço, at the 14th Extraordinary Summit of Heads of State and of the Government of the African Union (AU), which is taking place under the theme "Silencing Arms in Africa", by video-conference from Johannesburg, South Africa.

Regarding the conflict in Western Sahara, the Angolan minister defended the negotiating way at seeking a mutually acceptable solution.

The diplomat reaffirmed that Angola is firmly engaged in the fight against all scourges which affect peace, stability and development of the African continent.

In this area, he stressed that the fight against terrorism must be one of the priorities of the collective action by Heads of State.

On the other hand, Téte António reiterated the proposal of President João Lourenço on the holding of an Extraordinary Summit of the African Union on terrorism.

He justified that the issue of Peace and Security in Africa posed challenges that required increasing engagement and consultation of States at AU level to address the causes of the continuing conflicts on the continent and to identify the means and the appropriate ways of resolving them.
