|The President of the African Union Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, visited the Community of Sant'Egidio on the occasion of her stay in Rome.|
The meeting, which takes place as part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the AU, was an opportunity to deepen the cooperation between the Community of Sant'Egidio and the African continental organisation on the issues of peace and reconciliation, AIDS treatment and the fight against poverty. Sant'Egidio is present, by means of its communities, in 30 African countries.
The president of Sant'Egidio, Marco Impagliazzo, expressed to Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, one of the leaders of the ANC, both his concern for Nelson Mandela’s health and the closeness to Madiba’s family and all the South African people. Then Impagliazzo recalled the cooperation between the Community and Nelson Mandela in the peace process in Burundi.
Finally, President Dlamini Zuma congratulated the community for its work for peace and development in the entire African continent..
