Republic of the Congo: ICRC resumes its activities in the Pool
17-02-2006 News Release
Press release issued by the ICRC delegation in Brazzaville.
Owing to an improvement in the security situation over the past few weeks, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has decided to gradually resumes its work in the Pool region starting on 17 February. The organization will carry on with the medical, water and economic-recovery programmes it has set up for the civilian population and pursue its information activities and its work to spread knowledge of international humanitarian law. It hopes that the prevailing security conditions, which allow the free flow of people and goods and guarantee respect for civilians and the organizations working in the region, will hold and that they are not simply the result of temporary measures.
