Somalia-UN, Politics, 8/19/2004
The UN Security Council on Tuesday approved monitoring the illegal flow of weapons to Somalia for additional 6 months, on the ground of tightening the weapons embargo imposed on this country which is situated in the east of Africa.
The UN Security Council, which is composed of 15 members, approved unanimously a resolution confirming the commitment of all members of the UN, of 191 countries to totally abide by the weapons embargo imposed in 1992 and expressed " determination to deal with countries violate the embargo. "
The resolution was approved one day after a UN monitoring force which has Nairobi as a headquarters announced that the embargo is continuously violated. A matter which feeds the cycle of violence which resulted in killing hundreds in recent months and ensures weapons for an unsafe area in adjoining Kenya.
