Democratic Republic of Congo

Volume 705: debated on Tuesday 25 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What assistance they will provide to support the United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo. [HL6189]

The UK contributes 7.8 per cent of the cost of the UN mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUC) through its assessed payments to the UN’s peacekeeping budget, which totalled £39,728,447 in the past financial year. In addition the UK currently has five personnel in MONUC occupying key staff appointments in Kinshasa and Goma. We will continue to work closely with the UN and Security Council partners to ensure that MONUC is as efficient and effective as possible.
