The meeting, which was attended by representatives from the fifteen member States, was led by Peru, who is overseeing the work of this body during the month of April.
The aim of the meeting was to gather information on the work in the field by the United Nations mission, from the Deputy General Secretary, Jean-Pierre La Croix, on humanitarian matters, and to follow the recommendations made by representatives from the member States.
The Republic of Equatorial Guinea, after welcoming the report, lamented the adversity suffered by the country, from natural disasters to political complications.
The Ambassador, Anatolio Ndong Mba, accompanied by his First Deputy, Job Obiang Esono Mbengono, and the Political Coordinator, Victor Ele Ela, praised the Haiti Government for the good political will and leadership shown during the period that, as he pointed out, will result at the end of the coming year in a transition in which the team of countries from the United Nations Agencies will take on their full role in the development of the country.
Anatolio Ndong Mba concluded his speech explaining the need to take into consideration the limiting factors which could hinder the process. In that respect, Equatorial Guinea attracted the attention of the United Nations and the international community regarding the cholera situation which exists in Haiti, in order that urgent measures to save human lives are adopted.
