Guinea-Bissau had made progress towards emerging from the political turmoil of the past few years, including the approval of a road map for security-sector reform, but deep concerns remained, representatives of the Secretariat and the Peacebuilding Commission told the Security Council today.
“There has been progress in the political and security environments, although the situation remains complex and tenuous,” said Joseph Mutaboba, Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Integrated Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS), as he presented the Secretary-General’s latest report. Joining him in briefing the Council was Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti (Brazil), Council President for February, who spoke in her capacity as Chair of the Peacebuilding Commission’s Guinea-Bissau Configuration. Prime Minister Carlos Gomes Júnior also addressed Council members.
