Africa to support India's Security Council candidature

"Africa not only expects from India but will be able to assist India in areas like the UN reforms," Teodore Obiang Nguema Mbasago, chairperson of the African Union and president of Equatorial Guinea, told reporters at a joint press conference with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

"India will be able to count on the support of Africa (for India's bid for a permanent seat in the Security Council)," Mbasago said at the end of the two-day 2nd India-Africa Summit at the African Union headquarters here.

The 53-nation African Union holds the key to reform and changes in the UN Security Council if it votes as a bloc.
