Kubiš debates Darfur and Kosovo at UN Security Council

The crisis in Darfur was the main topic for Slovak Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš while at the UN Security Council in New York on April 17.

Kubiš told the media that efforts to stop the humanitarian crisis in Darfur have failed and the UN has to increase pressure on all parties involved in the conflict. He said he appreciated the co-operation of the UN and the African Union, but said that measures need to be sped up in order to prevent the conflict from spreading beyond Sudan's borders.

He also discussed the issue of Kosovo with delegates from other UN Security Council member countries, and confirmed Slovakia's stance on the issue. According to Kubiš, Slovakia is "readable" for its partners, but its position is not quite in line with the EU's stance.

Slovakia is currently a non-permanent member of the UN Security.
