I stand on existing Protocols

Let me on the outset, on behalf of the African Union Commission, and on my own behalf extend my appreciation to the United Nations, the Government of Rwanda and our host - the Government of the Kingdom of Netherlands for organizing this important Preparatory Meeting on ‘Performance’ and ‘Protection of Civilians’ ahead of the planned Ministerial Meeting later this year. This meeting is timely and being hosted just few days after USG Lacroix and I undertook joint field visits to Mali, Central Africa Republic and South Sudan. It is an honour to work with USG Lacroix and UN colleagues in conducting peace operations as it is only though strategic partnership that we will be to be more effective. In this regard, The first hand experiences of the real issues on the ground that we noted during our joint field visits are critical for this platform that aim to ensure continuous enhancement of performance at all levels for protection of civilians in peace operations.

In this regard, let me provide a brief on AU’s efforts in enhancing the performance and effectiveness of our Peace Support Operations, including our approaches in ensuring Protection of Civilians (PoC).
