Expected Council Action
Council members will be briefed by Special Envoy of the Secretary-General Joaquim Chissano on Thursday, 22 March. The briefing is expected to cover the latest developments in the peace talks between the Ugandan government and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).
Members are currently negotiating a draft presidential statement circulated by the UK. The draft largely builds on the November 2006 presidential statement and reinforces Chissano's role.
Expected Council Action
Council members are currently negotiating a presidential statement on Uganda. Adoption in the next few days is possible.
It seems that there is agreement that the statement should focus on the current peace talks and related issues, including the humanitarian situation.
It is unclear what position the Council will take on the justice and reconciliation dilemma and the related issue of arrest warrants from the International Criminal Court (ICC) against the leadership of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).
Overview for November
In November the Council will be under the presidency of Peru. The Council mission to Afghanistan, although comprising only a selection of Council members, will inevitably divert a lot of energy and focus away from the work programme in New York.
Fortunately, November is unusually light in terms of mandate expiry and review dates. Only one mandate renewal is expected, the EU Mission in Bosnia-Herzegovina (EUFOR) and only one review is scheduled - Ethiopia/Eritrea. But there are a full range of other pressing issues.
