President of the African Union on official visit to Cuba
His visit to the island, which is the first as leader of one of Africa's most important organizations, will contribute to broadening political and friendship and cooperation ties between the Cuban government and the African Union.
The African leader had previously participated as a guest to the 14th Summit of Non Aligned Nations held in Havana in September of 2006.
The African Union is the former Organization of African Unity. Since its creation in 2002, the institution has worked towards political and economic integration in the continent.
