The Leader of the Revolution hailed the "positive outcome" of the 11th summit of the African Union (AU) just ended in the Egyptian seaside resort of Sharm El-Sheikh.

Addressing the closing session of the African leaders' conference, the Leader said that the Sharm El-Sheikh summit had addressed very important issues on Africa's future "such as the formation of the (African) federal government towards the establishment of the United States of Africa, problems related to food, water and climate change".

He went on to say that all these issues were discussed thoroughly in a peaceful and democratic atmosphere.

The Leader also expressed deep satisfaction with the important decision reached by the summit on the formation of the African federal government, noting that the next summit in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) would make it possible for Africans to carry out the final act of formalising the continental government.

The summit directed the AU Commission chairman, Jean Ping, to set up a mechanism for the road map for setting up the Union Government and to report on this issue during the pan-African organisation's next summit in January 2009 to be held in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Abeba.

"We are progressing with confidence in our right for life and in the huge possibilities of the continent. Africa is a rich continent and more specifically the richest in the world," the Leader said.
