ADDIS ABABA, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) — African Union (AU) leaders agreed Tuesday to launch a first ever Global African Diaspora Summit on May 25 in South Africa.

AU leaders, meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, asked the AU Commission and South Africa to collaborate for a successful diaspora summit.

They requested the AU Commission to consider and prepare a framework document on the representation of the African diaspora in AU structures and processes.

Meanwhile, the leaders called on member states, AU partners and the diaspora communities worldwide to support the summit and its implementation strategy.

The summit would help build a solid foundation for reviving the African family across the world to give impetus to the renaissance of the continent, said the leaders.
