On Mali, Araud Tells ICP Feltman Briefs UNSC Tuesday, Chad Not with Serval?

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, January 21, updated -- The morning after France reportedly bombed Timbuktu in northern Mali -- first video here -- Inner City Press asked French Ambassador Gerard Araud when the UN Security Council will be updated about France's military intervention.

  Araud told Inner City Press, tomorrow (January 22) in an open meeting. Inner City Press asked Araud who would be briefing.

  Probably Jeffery Feltman, Araud answered, referring to the American chief of the UN Department of Political Affairs.

  Earlier, Chad's Ambassador to the UN told Inner City Press while his country is sending troops to Mali, they will not be with the French Operation Serval. We are sending more troops than other countries, he told Inner City Press, in order to have autonomy.

  When Inner City Press asked Araud about Chad, Araud said yes they will participate, the legislature [in Chad] has already agreed. But with Serval? Watch this site.

Update of 2 pm -- Inner City Press is informed that, along with Feltman, speakers Tuesday afternoon will include the Permanent Representatives of Cote d'Ivoire (as ECOWAS Chair), Chad, Senegal and Burkina Faso.

Footnote: A "serval" is a hissing cat; some have jokingly called France's intervention "Operation Hissyfit," though no one in Timbuktu is laughing.
