Ethiopia: African Union To Create Rapid Response Force

The African Union will create a military rapid reaction force, to be known as the African Capacity for Immediate Response to Crises, to handle regional coups, rebellions and wars, African Union Chairman and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn said May 27, Reuters reported. According to Desalegn, the new force will help reduce the continent's reliance on foreign assistance for defense. Though African countries are generally supportive of the African Union, the organization will remain relatively powerless since none of its members are willing to cede power and cooperate across borders in a manner that jeopardizes their positions domestically.
