Discussing possible collaboration

Posted by African Press International on November 18, 2013

ABIDJAN, Côte d’Ivoire, November 14, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Côte d’Ivoire and Head of the United Nations Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI), Mrs Aïchatou Mindaoudou, on Wednesday, 13 November 2013, met with the head of a delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Georges Comminos.

Georges Comminos, who came to present the activities of the ICRC in Côte d’Ivoire, said he highlighted the areas in which the two organisations complement each other and the possibility of collaboration.

«The ICRC is an organisation independent of the United Nations. However there are areas, especially in terms of humanitarian action, for which we discussed developing responses for the communities living in Côte d’Ivoire. In prisons for instance where ICRC is very active and in the west of the country, where we have a number of humanitarian programmes, it is important to see how we can collaborate and draw up strategies complementary to the work of UN agencies and UNOCI in order to attain our objectives, » explained Mr. Comminos.

The head of the regional delegation of the ICRC said he was satisfied with the discussions and in general, the level of cooperation between ICRC and UNOCI and with the different humanitarian agencies of the United Nations.
