Chapter Summary

United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda (UNAMIR) had been established on October 5, 1993, for a period of six months, which meant that the Security Council had to decide upon the future of the mission on April 5, 1994. Somalia has always played a prominent role in the American attitude towards UNAMIR. Viewing Rwanda as a simple, classical peace-keeping operation, keeping the peace by implementing the agreement in a short period of time, Clinton defended this peace-keeping operation. This chapter explains that the Belgian ambassador in Rwanda was aware of the anti-Belgian feelings within a section of the Rwandan population. These anti-Belgian feelings resulted in some incidents against the Belgians at the end of January, the end of February and the beginning of April. The most important incidents are discussed.
