STORYLINE:
Briefing reporters today (5 Apr), Farhan Haq, UN Deputy Spokesperson said that “colleagues at the UN Mission [MONUSCO] have confirmed the death of one peacekeeper from Nepal.”

The Secretary-General strongly condemns today’s attack against peacekeepers serving in the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) in Bali, Djugu territory, Ituri province, by suspected members of the Coopérative pour le développement du Congo (CODECO) militia. The attack resulted in the killing of one peacekeeper from Nepal.

The Secretary-General expresses his deepest condolences to the family of the fallen peacekeeper, as well as to the Government and the people of Nepal.

The Secretary-General recalls that attacks against United Nations peacekeepers may constitute a war crime. He calls on the Congolese authorities to investigate this incident and swiftly bring those responsible to justice.

The Secretary-General reaffirms that the United Nations, through his Special Representative in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, will continue to support the Congolese Government and people in their efforts to bring about peace and stability in the east of the country.
