New Security Council President discusses Libya, Côte d’Ivoire & Haiti
With deadly violence continuing in Côte d’Ivoire and Libya, the new UN Security Council President for the month of April says the 15 member body has a lot of work to do. Colombian Ambassador Nestor Osorio says the debate over arming the Libyan opposition is just one of the many issues they may have to tackle. Also, the refusal of Côte d’Ivoire’s Laurent Gbagbo to relinquish power to the internationally recognized President, is another pressing matter at hand according to Osorio. He also says Colombia will hold an open debate on Haiti in an effort to spur development there and create awareness of the tiny Caribbean Island’s plight. Julie Walker sat down with Ambassador Osorio at UN radio studios to discuss his plan of work for the month.
