NEW YORK, January 30, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — The Secretary-General has been closely following the situation in

Madagascar, as a result of serious unrest and the death of dozens of

people that took place in Antananarivo and elsewhere recently. He is

concerned about the security of the population and deplores the loss of

life there.

 

The Secretary-General calls on the Malagasy Government to place an

absolute priority on the protection of the population.

 

It is up to the Malagasy parties to settle their disagreements

through peaceful means and an inclusive dialogue.

 

The United Nations reiterates its offer of support to the dialogue

process and to national reconciliation.
