Somalia: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 481: debated on Monday 27 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what progress has been made in securing the (a) financial resources, (b) personnel and (c) equipment for the international stabilisation force for Somalia; and if he will make a statement. (226072)

The UN Security Council Presidential Statement of 4 September 2008 requested the Secretary-General elaborate on his contingency plans for an international force in Somalia; asked that he report back to the Council in 60 days on options for the force; and asked that he approach potential contributors of financial resources, personnel and equipment. I await his report with interest.
