Guinea-Bissau / UN / Statement Attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General

 

BISSAU, Guinea Bissau, August 11, 2008/African Press Organization (APO)/ — The Secretary-General is deeply concerned over the mounting

political and security tensions in Guinea-Bissau. This situation occurs

at a time when preparations for legislative elections in November are

under way and progress is being made to engage the international

community to help meet the country’s priority peacebuilding goals,

including its fight against drug trafficking.

 

The Secretary-General calls on all national stakeholders to work

cooperatively and peacefully together in the national interest and in

full respect of the rule of law. He reaffirms the readiness of the

United Nations to continue to support any constructive efforts that the

Government and people of Guinea-Bissau undertake towards promoting peace

and development and the stabilization of their country.
