RABAT, January 06, 23:27 /ITAR-TASS/. Egypt’s Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy has called on the African Union Peace and Security Council to review its decision to suspend Egypt from all its activities. Fahmy said in Algiers on Monday this step was a “bad decision.”
He called on the African Union Peace and Security Council to waste no time and revise this decision that was taken following the overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi. Moreover, he called on the African Union to recognize those developments as a revolution in Egypt.
The African Union suspended Egypt’s membership on July 5, 2013. "As mandated by the relevant AU instruments, the African Union Peace and Security Council decides to suspend the participation of Egypt in AU activities until the restoration of constitutional order," Admore Kambudzi, Secretary of the Peace and Security Council of AU, said back then.
"The overthrow of the democratically elected president does not conform to the relevant provisions of the Egyptian constitution and therefore falls under the definition of an unconstitutional change of government," the Council said in a release.
Later on, African Union representatives resolutely denied any conspiracy against Egypt, saying that the suspension of Egypt’s membership was not a punitive measure.
