Addis Ababa(Mogadsihu24)-In alignment with the AU Agenda 2063 and the goal for empowering indigenous African languages to contribute to our continent’s progress, I wish to propose the inclusion of Amharic as the official language of the African Union,” Foreign Minister Taye Atske Selassie said in his remarks at the 44th session of the AU Executive Council.

It is worth noting that the OAU Charter was initially signed in four languages, including Amharic. Adopting Amharic as one of the official language of the Union would honor Africa’s linguistic diversity and strengthen our collective identity as Africans, Taye underscored.
