After Chad Goes Into Cameroon Against Boko Haram, UNSC Statement

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, January 19, more here -- With Boko Haram reaching beyond Nigeria, Chad has sent its forces into Cameroon. Inner City Press on January 19 asked Chad's ambassador to the UN if his country wants a UN resolution and UN funding. Yes, he said, unfortunately the Security Council has yet to ask but is expected to adopt a Presidential Statement later on January 19.

  A Presidential Statement, of course, doesn't provide any funding for soldiers.

  Back on December 8, Inner City Press reported on the push by  Chad, Cameroon and others to get a UN Security Council resolution. They hoped for it that month, but later other Council members told Inner City Press of resistance from members who wanted to see more details; theses sources complained of Security Council double standards.
  Chad, which already expressed anger that the UN's "Sahel" office is not headquartered in one of the Sahel countries and at being taken for granted by, among others, its predecessor as Security Council president, still seems ready to push for a resolution - and funding.  Watch this site.
