Chapter Summary

The new UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, declared Africa, and in particular the crisis in Darfur, as a priority on his agenda. The Security Council stressed the importance of boosting the resources and capacity of the AU after a meeting organized on the initiative of South Africa. The Security Council commended the agreement between the DR Congo and Rwanda to work together against threats to peace and stability. The secretary general welcomed the deployment of African states to Somalia and the AU, and called on the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) to reach out to other groups and on all neighbouring states to respect Somali sovereignty. NEPAD continued to attract support from UN member states. The UN climate change conference stated that new agreements on climate change would only work if developed countries honoured past commitments made since the climate change convention and protocol came into force many years earlier.
