Amid Mali Spin, P5 to Meet Tuesday, All 15 on Thursday, OIC Wants In

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, October 2 -- Mali was referred to in many of the UN General Assembly speeches over the last week, but what is in fact being done?

  France has publicly offered to provide logistical help for the "re-conquest" of northern Mali. Inner City Press asked French Permanent Representative to the UN Gerard Araud Tuesday morning in front of the Security Council if France has a draft text.

  We have consultations on Thursday [on Mali], Araud replied. From others, Inner City Press learned that Tuesday itself, the Permanent Five members of the Security Council would meet about Mali.

  "They don't know how they want to proceed," a Council source told Inner City Press. The US State Department's "Assistant Secretary Carson said, 'let the re-conquest begin,'" the source continued, "then AFRICOM spun what he said and changed it. Now who knows."

   The Organization for Islamic Cooperation is also getting involved, with a humanitarian visit and to get more involved in the mediation. The mausoleums are the OIC's hook, and there are more of them left than is sometimes reported. Watch this site.
