Somalia / Possible United Nations peacekeeping deployment



Somalia / Possible United Nations peacekeeping deployment


MOGADISHU, Somalia, March 12, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Daily press briefing by the office of the spokesperson for the UN secretary-general



The Secretary-General’s latest report on Somalia is out today.  And it says there remains uncertainty about whether peacekeeping is the right tool to back the political process in Somalia.  This assessment comes a month before his 15 April final advice and recommendations to the Security Council on a possible United Nations peacekeeping deployment to that country.  In the meantime, the Secretary-General says he will continue to update and refine the contingency plan prepared by United Nations departments after a number of technical-assessment missions to Somalia.
