In his speech, Al-Menfi praised the efforts made to advance the process of African action to realize the aspirations of the peoples of the continent through the African Union, the regional economic groups and regional mechanisms.
Al-Menfi stressed that the continent needs integration to reach to the rank it deserves, saying that this will only come with a strong political will and one voice at all regional, continental and international levels.
