The immigration ban order imposed by Donald Trump has been criticized by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. He said that it was undesirable that the borders of one of the most developed nations in the world are closed.
Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General was addressing the inaugural of African Union summit being held in Addis Ababa. He was full of praise for the African nations as they are one among the largest and most liberal nations forthcoming to refugees.
Guterres elaborated on the generous nature of the nations in African continent that remain opened for the ones in need at a time when several highly developed nations in the world are closing their borders for the refugees, as quoted by the Times of India.
The African Union Summit that inaugurated its 28th session is the first one being held after Trump being sworn in as the President. The effects of the Trump’s presidency are already being experienced by the continent of Africa.
Seven Muslim nations that were banned by Trump include the African nations of Sudan, Somalia and Libya and the White House has been condemned and criticized by several nations all over the world.
The retiring Chairperson of Commission of African Union Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has said that the times ahead are very turbulent for the world. The most apparent instance for this is that the very nation that enslaved the natives of African nations is now banning the refugees, added Nkosazana.
It is going to be one of the very tough and supreme testing times to the unity and harmony of African nations, explained the retiring Chairperson of Commission of African Union.
The African Union summit has a very serious agenda that includes the decision to permit Morocco to once again become a member of the Union after its secession 33 years ago.
