Moussa Faki Mahamat, chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission, urged on June 18 AU member states to redouble efforts to solve the refugees crisis.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Convention of the then Organization for African Unity (OAU) on refugees, he said that treating and protecting all refugees without discrimination were unanimous demands of Arican countries.

Remarking that there were 7.3 million refugees in the continent, he emphasized that solving this issue by the roots was very important.
