African nations condemn Trump's remarks on immigration
 
New York, Jan. 13 (Petra)--Ambassador of 54 African countries at the United Nations unanimously demanded that US President Donald Trump retract and apologise for his reported denunciation of immigration from African nations.

The African Group of UN ambassadors is "extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media," a statement said.

After an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks, the group said it was "concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the US administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color." While demanding a "retraction and an apology" from Trump, the 54 countries also thanked those Americans "from all walks of life who have condemned the remarks." //Petra//
