PRESS CONFERENCE BY SECURITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT ON WORK PROGRAMME FOR DECEMBER
The Security Council in December planned to intensify its focus on the Sahel, particularly the crisis in Mali, along with continued consideration of a range of situations around the world, the Permanent Representative of Morocco said as he briefed correspondents at Headquarters on the programme of work for his country’s presidency of the body.
He said, in response to questions, that he expected a new dynamic in the regular briefing on the Middle East, given the agreement to end the violence in Gaza, which included terms of lifting the blockade, as well as the upgraded status of Palestine in the Organization and the subsequent Israeli announcement of new settlement building, about which the Observer of Palestine had sent a letter to the Council. The briefing would be held on 19 December.
