President Maada Bio's arrival in Nouakchott was welcomed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Alie Kabba and the Minister of Finance Jacob Jusu Saffa, both of whom have been part of an advanced delegation to Nouakchott ahead of the 31st Ordinary Session of the African Union Assembly slated for 30th June - 2nd July 2018.

Reports say Maada Bio was officially received by his counterpart, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania at the Oumtounsy International Airport, Nouakchott. Mauritanian President Aziz held a closed-door meeting with President Bio where they renewed the bilateral ties between Sierra Leone and Mauritania.

This African Union Summit is President Bio’s first AU Summit as President of the Republic of Sierra Leone. Despite attending his maiden AU Summit, his international reputation has been strengthened by being conferred two important responsibilities as Chairperson of the Peace and Security Council of the African Union and Coordinator of the African Union Committee of Ten on UN Security Council Reform.

President Bio has given a new face to Sierra Leone’s international reputation as many Heads of State and Government see him as young, charismatic, inspiring and economically prudent.
 


The African Union Summit starts today Saturday 30th June 2018 and President Bio will deliver five key speeches on range of issues while chairing two important meetings of Heads of State and Government. President Bio was accompanied by his wife, Mrs Fatima Bio. (Photo above: Foreign Minister Alie Kabba with Finance Minister Jacob Sahr Jusu, right).
