The African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights signed on Sunday a memorandum of understanding with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to promote cooperation in the field of protecting human rights.

President of the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights Sylvain Oré signed the memo with United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet on the fringe of the African Summit, which opened earlier Sunday in Addis Ababa.

In a statement, Oré said the court and the UN commission share many points of view on human rights preservation and protection.

The UN commissioner said the court is a key mechanism for promoting human rights in Africa.
