Statement to the United Nations Security Council Meeting on the Situation in Africa

  • Share

"I wish also to seize the opportunity of this meeting to stress the importance of timely action and support by the international community, and particularly by the United Nations and its Security Council, in support of Peace Agreements promoted by the OAU or the regional economic communities in cooperation with the OAU. In saying so, I have in mind our experience in the past when critical time and opportunities for peace were lost because of the lack of timely action by the United Nations Security Council. The sad experience of the UN inaction with respect to the situation in Congo Brazzaville is still fresh in our mind." - Dr. Salim, September 29, 1999
