News Brief: Second Resolution of the Security Council Regarding the End of Violence in the DRC Is Passed

The delegate from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) proposed a resolution in the Security Council, which emphasized the escalation of violence in the Eastern region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as the necessity to eliminate bloodshed in this region.

The delegate of Vietnam, Deputy Secretary General Kar Jin O. (12, ISKL), gave a speech regarding the proposed Strategic Hamlet Program, which, when implemented during the Cold and Vietnam Wars, “displaced people from where they belonged to camps where they did not.”

Of the eleven clauses proposed in the resolution, nine have been passed. The two clauses that have not been passed included one regarding the condemnation of the Ugandan and Rwandan governments’ continued sponsorship of the March 23 Movement. The other unpassed clause specified the presence of UN Peacekeepers in secured villages within the DRC.

The second resolution proposed in the Security Council saw significant success, and will further ensure the protection of citizens residing in the DRC and the surround Great Lakes Region.
