Moussa Faki Mahamat, the head of the African Union, said that Israel’s observer status had been taken away. Because of this, the country was not invited to the African Union’s weekend summit.

On Sunday, the day after the Israeli delegation was barred from the summit’s opening ceremony in the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, AU commission head Moussa Faki Mahamat stated: “We talked about Israel’s status as an observer in the African Union last year. After all of these talks, the conference decided to make an ad hoc committee of heads of state to look into the problem. This means that the law is put on hold while the committee talks. We did not invite Israeli officials to our summit as a result “He announced.

Israel received this observer status from Moussa Faki Mahamat in 2021. The announcement had sparked protests from Algeria and South Africa, as well as an uproar across the entire pan-African bloc. The withdrawal of accreditation was then the subject of a committee of heads of state that was established last year. While the committee was considering its options, the statute was suspended.

“We discovered that there was a person in the room who had a badge, so of course we asked him to leave. Since he doesn’t live in the country and traveled here from Israel on an invitation from the head of the African Union Commission, we are currently conducting the necessary investigations. The representative wasn’t invited “Moussa Faki Mahamat was added.
