Democratic Republic of the Congo / Statement attributable to the Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General

 

KINSHASA, Dem. Rep. of Congo (DRC) October 27, 2008/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Lieutenant General Vicente Diaz de Villegas y Herrería of Spain, who

 

was recently appointed as Force Commander for the United Nations

 

Organization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC),

 

has indicated that for personal reasons he will not be able to

 

continue with his assignment as planned. The Department of

 

Peacekeeping Operations is pursuing arrangements to ensure continuity

 

of command and to replace General Diaz as quickly as possible. In the

 

interim, Brigadier General Ishmeel Ben Quartey of Ghana will serve as

 

Acting Force Commander pending the appointment of General Diaz’s

 

successor.
