  • Description

    The Organisation of African Unity's (OAU) tenth anniversary celebrations closed in Addis Ababa on Saturday (26 May) with a round of speeches by heads of state. The OAU's annual summit meeting opened the following day (27 May).

    Vice-President Ismail Ali Akokor addressed the OAU delegates on behalf of the Somali President, Maj.Gen. Muhammad Siad Barre, who had said he would not visit Addis Ababa because of the current border dispute between his country and Ethiopia.

    Following an appeal to President Barre by a special OAU conciliation committee formed to mediate in the dispute, the Somali leader flew to the Ethiopian capital on Monday (28 May) to attend the OAU summit.
