Highlights

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon will travel to Cairo on Thursday, 14 April 2011, for meetings with the Arab League. The EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, will also attend the meeting.

In a letter to EU and NATO Member States, Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos noted that the humanitarian community has been successful in delivering food, medical equipment and other items into Misrata, Libya, on civilian vessels without military escort. She stressed that the humanitarian community would like to continue exploring these options before invoking military support.
