- The UN proves its impotence in Bosnia but also in Rwanda where its capacity to re-establish a dialogue between government forces and rebels of the Patriotic Front is very limited. Despite initial contact, fighting continues in the capital.
- At Kigali airport, after the foreign nationals, after the diplomats, after the soldiers dispatched on the spot, it is the turn of certain United Nations forces to set off. The Belgian blue helmets leave the UNAMIR which, according to Belgium, is without object. She even outright advocates the suspension of the UN mandate and the withdrawal of troops. An undiplomatic way of signifying the total failure of the UN. A United Nations 2,500 strong in Rwanda and yet incapable of imposing the Arusha peace accords. Unable to prevent these thousands of massacres. Unable to even negotiate a simple ceasefire.
- Admittedly, talks took place today between RPF rebels and government troops. But we are still fighting in Kigali and the forces of the Rwandan Patriotic Front continue their advances on the ground. Just as he seemed able to take the capital, Boutros-Ghali announced that the Security Council would decide in the coming hours whether to maintain a military presence in Rwanda.
- But more than men, a clear and firm policy is needed. In the meantime, people continue to die in Kigali and more and more Rwandans are fleeing to neighboring countries.
