UN Security Council establishes assistance mission in Somalia for one year
UNITED NATIONS, May 2 (KUNA) -- The Security Council on Thursday voted unanimously to establish the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) which will be deployed starting June 3 and for an initial period of 12 months.
The mission will support peace and reconciliation efforts, assist the government and the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) with advice on peace-building and state-building, assist the federal government in coordinating international support, and help build government capacity in human rights and the rule of law.
The resolution requests the Secretary-General to report to the Council by early September and subsequently every 90 days, on the implementation of the resolution.
