Finally, whenever a question of great importance to the African continent is on the agenda of one of the main UN organs, such as the Security Council or ECOSOC, the African States occupying a seat on those organs are invited to participate in the deliberations of the Executive Committee. This was the case in early 1995, for instance, when the Security Council was holding preliminary discussions about the future of the United Nations Angola Verification Mission (UNAVEM). The three African Members of the Security Council at the time, Botswana, Nigeria, and Rwanda, were invited to participate in the meetings conducted in February 1995, during which the Executive Committee received a delegation from the OAU’s Council of Ministers and prepared a plan of action for the subsequent UNAVEM debate at the Security Council.
