Representative of the Secretary-General Karin Landgren’s Press Briefing (Transcript of Question and Answer Session)
PDF File Size: 121 KB | Download   
As the Secretary-General said in his report, the timing of our departure is not optimal. We would have liked to have seen the peace process advance much further, in particular around the integration and rehabilitation, which would have sorted out the matter of the cantonments once and for all. That said, I think the end of the peace process is clearly in sight and the effect of the end of UNMIN’s mandate has been to focus the minds of all the parties. As we speak, discussions are going on about the future monitoring arrangements. I am confident that they will be able to reach some agreement before the 15th. From our perspective, we expect to leave, so the pressure will be on, and some arrangements will be put in place before we leave. This is clearly a risk - and it is a risk understood by all parties. One thing on which there is no disagreement is that this is a critical phase in the peace process. After all of the work that has gone into this process since 2006, it would be unfortunate to let it slip because of a failure to arrange for monitoring.
