The Director-General of UNESCO says he is « relieved » at yesterday’s announcement about the resumption of the « Oil for Food » Programme

29-03-2003 - Declaring his “deep sympathy with the Iraqi people, whose suffering has been worsened by lack of food and drinking water supplies”, Koïchiro Matsuura has reaffirmed UNESCO’s determination to “resume as soon as possible, alongside the other eight United Nations system agencies involved, an active part in the implementation of the Oil for Food Programme”.

“News of the resumption of the Oil for Food Programme is a relief for all those who are determined to allay the suffering of the Iraqi people. Provision of drinking water, food and medicine is an absolute priority, but we must also be ready to ensure the continuity of the educational process for the Iraqi children”, he added.
