PRESS CONFERENCE BY SECURITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT ON WORK PROGRAMME FOR JULY
The Security Council’s work for July included a ministerial-level debate on the situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Great Lakes region, Acting Permanent Representative of the United States, Rosemary A. DiCarlo, said today at Headquarters as she assumed the 15-nation body’s presidency.
The Council would follow several other troubling situations, particularly in Syria, she said.
Responding to a question about Secretary of State Kerry’s planned visit to the United Nations and his recent shuttle diplomacy for the Middle East, as well as the role of the Quartet, Ms. DiCarlo said that her delegation would use “every possible avenue” to bring the two parties to the table.
