Oxfam reaction to UN Security Council resolution authorizing additional troops for Congo

Friday, November 21, 2008
Oxfam welcomes the UN Security Council resolution to authorize an additional 3,000 troops and police for the UN peacekeeping force, MONUC. Reinforcements to the overstretched force are a critical part of what is needed to ensure effective protection of civilians, improve overall security and humanitarian access and create space for political dialogue.
