The decision by the African Union (AU) Peace and Security Council (PSC) to deploy a humanitarian mission against the spread of Ebola is a first for the AU. The ball is now in the AU Commission’s court to get doctors, nurses and paramedics on the ground as soon as possible.
The PSC has received a report from the AU Commission on the situation in the Central African Republic and on its African-led International Support Mission in the CAR.
The deteriorating situation in Libya is a priority for the AU and has been the object of several discussions and meetings of the PSC. The PSC recently called for an urgent ceasefire and the holding of a national dialogue involving all stakeholders in Libya.
The PSC’s planned visit to South Sudan has been postponed amidst deepening concern about the failure of warring parties to stick to the numerous ceasefire agreements.
