Somalia: United Nations

Volume 467: debated on Thursday 22 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether it is Government policy to support further UN engagement in Somalia. (165986)

We believe that the current African Union mission should be succeeded by an effective UN mission in Somalia, provided that the conditions on the ground are right.

UN Security Council Resolution 1772 requests that planning for a UN mission take place and that the international community work to identify actions to create the conditions that would enable deployment to take place.
