President Attends 5th AU/EU Summit In Cote D'Ivoire

President Attends 5th AU/EU Summit In Cote D'Ivoire

The chairman of the African Union Commission says between 400,000 and 700,000 African migrants are living in camps in Libya, often under "inhuman" conditions.

"But it's just one camp. the Libyan government tells us that there are 42 in all".

The theme is of great significance and a priority for Africa and the European Union, as 60 per cent of the African population is under the age of 25.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari addresses the 72nd United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters in NY, U.S., September 19, 2017. Macron noted that it was a criminal offense to engage in human trafficking.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on African and European leaders to place youth issues within their priorities in order to maintain peace in the two continents, stressing the need for increased cooperation among African countries to be able to fight terrorism, with the strong support of the United Nations and the European Union.

However, recent CNN footage of men being sold at an auction for as little as $400 (about R4500), to work as farm labourers, in the Libyan capital Tripoli tipped the scale of worldwide outrage.

To clamp down on the people traffickers in Libya, Macron called for African states to deploy police there, ruling out at least for the time being any French military involvement.

The uproar over slavery came after USA network CNN two weeks earlier aired footage from Libya of black Africans being sold.

Migration became the focus of the summit after CNN footage earlier this month showed migrants in Libya being sold as slaves.

"Migration will inevitably be an important part of our relationships in the years to come", said European Council President Donald Tusk.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, left, Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia, center, and South African President Jacob Zuma, right, attend a roundtable event at an EU Africa summit in Abidjan, Ivory Coast on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017.

Calling migration a "joint responsibility", Tusk said: "the worst we can do is to start the blame game".

The summit worked on ways to promote stability and long-term economic growth with Africa's population due to more than double to 2.4 billion people by 2050, prompting fears that millions could flee to Europe or turn to radical Islamist groups.
