  • Description

    In an address to the United Nations General Assembly on Monday (7 October), Mali's Foreign Minister, Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Samba Cissoko described the desperate conditions that drought has brought to his country and the Sahel region of Africa as a whole.

    He thanked the United Nations, its specialised organisations and all states who have given aid to the region. This aid is helping to overcome the immediate problems the drought has caused.

    Lieutenant-Colonel Cissoko then told the General Assembly of the proposals made by the Interstate Committee set up to combat the drought. The Committee met recently in Ouagadougou, Upper Volta to prepare plans for long term economic development of the Sahelian region. The Malian delegate went on to appeal for international assistance in financing these plans.
