On 27th March, the highest decision-making body at the UN has returned to the difficult question of States such as Syria, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Following motions of gratitude from representatives of the countries for the efforts made by the organisation in its constant search for peace, two draft resolutions were out to the vote, of which each obtained fifteen votes in favour, directed towards the ratification of the commitment of all member States in the task of searching for a solution and the re-establishment of normality.
With respect to the Democratic Republic of Congo, the draft resolution was passed unanimously with reference to the continuation of the work of the United Nations Mission, MONUSCO, until the holding of presidential elections in December, as it is a decisive moment for the country, according to members of the council.
The third meeting of the day had on the agenda the situation in Syria. After countries such as the United States, Bolivia, the Russian Federation, Poland, Ethiopia and others put forward their recommendations, Equatorial Guinea first welcomed the call to meeting, which it considers very important, and lamented the increase in violence in East Ghouta, Damascus, Idlib and other regions.
In this sense, our country has indicated that the increase in tension in Syria, between the forces of the Government and rebel groups, will do nothing but worsen and aggravate the situation, and so Equatorial Guinea will support and form part of any initiative that moves towards putting an end to the suffering of the Syrian people, taking into account that civilians need health and humanitarian aid, indicated the Ambassador Anatolio Ndong Mba, accompanied by the First Permanent Representative, Job Obiang Esono Mbengono.
