Chapter Summary

This chapter elaborates on two very concrete requests to New York to change and broaden the mandate of United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda (UNAMIR). The changing security situation in Rwanda required UNAMIR's mandate to be altered, or it would become impossible for UNAMIR to fulfill its mission any longer. The chapter deals with very clear and concrete requests that were rejected by U.N. headquarters in New York. It first presents the request from UNAMIR Force Commander General Roméo Dallaire to seize arms. The request had been rejected explicitly from mid-January until mid-March by U.N. headquarters not less than six times. The chapter then examines the requests from the Belgian government for a robust mandate for the peace-keepers.

Keywords: Belgian government; New York; peace-keepers; Roméo Dallaire; UNAMIR's mandate
