Tango said: “The African Union Commissioner’s Office should hold its employees without authority accountable, in accordance with the AU statute and in accordance with the United Nations Charter with respect to its employees, and it is not for its employees to decide to amend the borders of its sovereign member states without the basis of international law.”

Tango called on the African Union to return to the borders and map of Egypt when it joined the Union in 1964, as well as its map in 1963 when it signed the Cairo Declaration, and before it the map of Egypt, in 1945 when it joined the United Nations.
