Statement for the Fourth Humanitarian Conference on Somalia

  • Share

"We meet today, as we have done in the past, to see and think together on the best means of coordinating humanitarian assistance for the people of Somalia. We want to see how that assistance can effectively reach all those affected and, correspondingly, how the mitigation of the humanitarian crisis can contribute to the other associated political and security process towards the restoration of durable peace in that country.  Obviously, the success of our humanitarian mission is inextricably linked to the political process and unless the differences which hold the Somali people apart and in conflict are resolved, that mission is unlikely to succeed; however much we may try." - Dr. Salim, November 29, 1993
