Pravind Jugnauth, the Prime Minister of Mauritius, is urging the UK to quickly finalize negotiations regarding the Chagos archipelago at the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Despite Mauritius participating in good faith, no significant progress has been made in the talks, with Jugnauth accusing the UK of delaying an agreement. He has called for an urgent resolution to end British colonialism in Africa.

Jugnauth has faced unwarranted criticisms from British groups regarding the Chagos issue. He is dedicated to facilitating the return of Mauritian people, especially those with Chagossian heritage, to their homeland.

The Prime Minister also thanked the African Union for their support on the Chagos matter during discussions on peace and security. During the Summit, Jugnauth engaged in bilateral meetings with various African leaders, including the President of Mauritania and the President of the Central African Republic, to explore cooperation opportunities. Discussions focused on collaboration in agriculture, digital technology, financial services, and training.

Jugnauth also met with the President of Madagascar to strengthen trade relations and combat drug trafficking. The leaders of Mauritius and Madagascar expressed a desire to enhance cooperation, particularly in the economic sector.

At the African Union Summit, Jugnauth highlighted the need for swift action in the Chagos negotiations and condemned attempts to prolong the process. He reiterated his commitment to achieving justice and facilitating the return of Chagossian people.
