  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: The United Nations Security Council has strongly condemned what it termed an "act of armed aggression" carried out by a group of mercenaries against the West African country of Benin last January. A resolution was adopted, by concensus, without a vote on Thursday (14 April), but the 15-nation council did not identify any governments as having been responsible for the three-hour attack against Benin's economic capital, Cotonou. It appealed to all states to help Benin repair the damage and losses.

    SYNOPSIS: One of the speakers who expressed concern at the apparent violation of territorial integrity was the United States Deputy Ambassador, Albert Schere.
