[delivered by Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo, Special Envoy of the Secretary-General on the Great Lakes Region]

Lusaka, Zambia, 10 August 2009


Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am heartened that tensions in the Great Lakes region have eased in the past year. In particular, I welcome last week's summit between President Kabila of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and President Kagame of Rwanda.

I commend both leaders' commitment to promote peace and stability in the Great Lakes region. I also welcome the exchange of ambassadors by the two countries.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen - -- and Happy New Year!

We start the year with anxiety -- anxiety over the prospect of war in Iraq, over nuclear proliferation in the Korean Peninsula, and over what seems like violence without end in the Middle East. Even Côte d'Ivoire, which used to be one of the most stable and prosperous countries in Africa, is now caught in the downward spiral of conflict.

The threat of global terror hangs over all of us. We don't know where or when it will strike next.

And these are only the crises in the headlines!
