Sudan: UN Under-Secretary-General Visits Joint Support Coordination Mechanism Office in Addis Ababa

1 February 2009


Addis Ababa The United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping operations Alain Le Roy, along with the AU-UN Joint Special Representative Rodolphe Adada, paid a visit to the Joint Support Coordination Mechanism (JSCM) office in Addis Ababa to acquaint himself with its operational experience since it was established in November 2008. Underlining the importance that the United Nations attached to a close relationship with the African Union (AU) he disclosed that the United Nations was determined to strengthen AU capacities to mount peace keeping operations across Africa successfully at a time when the world body was in the process of innovating new responses to different challenges.

The JSCM was an important tool in the UN-Au partnership for effective communication, coordination and information-sharing, he said, in a meeting with staff who took the opportunity to express their views on the significance of the new office.
