Security Council debates how to bring ‘real, tangible improvements’ to Somalis
10 March 2011
The Security Council today called on the world community to provide urgently needed equipment to African peacekeepers in Somalia to consolidate recent fragile gains in stabilizing a country torn asunder by factional fighting for the past 20 years.
“The Security Council stresses the importance of predictable, reliable and timely resources for AMISOM,” the 15-member body said in a presidential statement, using the acronym of the African Union peacekeeping mission, during a day-long debate on the Horn of Africa country. It also stressed the need to reinforce the forces of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG).
