"I stand here, friends in my belief that under the proud banner of the Organisation of African Unity, the future of glorious African celebrations has only now begun. As we undertake out work it is right for us to pause for a moment to survey our achievements in the past decade, they have been many. But both our achievements and our failures are overwhelmed by the continuing need to proceed with the task of making this ancient continent.. the continent where man himself began... more effective in the world of the twentieth century, and more accomplished in the world of the twenty first century, that will soon be upon us. As Addis Ababa is typical of African hospitality, so is the Ethiopian Emperor impeccably symbolic of Africa's greatness, majestic in his stride and undeterred in his manner, this enduring and affectionate stalwart ???, the elder statement of Africa, represents the determination, the judgement and the nobility of the African people"
Mall's President T???ors made his speech to the meeting in French. He welcomed the fact that the international community was recognising more readily the dangers to peace caused by social and economic inequalities.
