The African Union Committee of Ten Heads of State and Government on UN reforms held its Fourth Consultative Summit on the Reform of the United Nations Security Council, in Malabo, Republic of Equatorial Guinea. In the subsequent communique, they decided as follows:
- The Common African Position as espoused in Ezulwini Consensus and the Sirte Declaration is the only viable option to redress the historical injustice done to the African Continent. The reform of the UN Security Council should be comprehensive in accordance with Decision 62/557 of the UN General Assembly.
- Stressed the critical importance for heightened engagement with the Permanent Members of the UN Security Council.
- Instructed the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the C-10 to come up with a proposed DECISION on a progressive approach for advancing the Common African Position on UN reform process, to be tabled at the AU Assembly in July 2017.
Following the Malabo Consultative Summit in May 2017 the Africa Group rejected the original and revised Food for Thought and reaffirmed its support for the text circulated by the president of the UNGA in August 2015.
