The fourth important aspect of global trust and solidarity is to secure the continent’s mineral-rich areas from pilfering and conflict.

We also commend His Excellency, Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations, for his work seeking to forge solutions to humanity’s common challenges.
