MSF sees greater UAE role for global peace

posted on 16/07/2002: 736 views

The UAE can serve a peace-keeper's role by providing a forum for the resolution of disputes in the region, with the office of Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) playing a supportive role, visiting MSF Director of Research Rony Brauman said in the Capital yesterday.

Speaking to Khaleej Times on the sidelines of a two-day conference on "Human Rights, War Victims and International Law", which began yesterday at the Zayed Centre for Co-ordination and Follow-Up (ZCCF), Dr Brauman said that humanitarian intervention in any conflict or disaster had today become inextricably intertwined with military intervention.

"There is always an ulterior motive to the so-called peace-keeping initiatives by certain superpowers," he pointed out. Brauman expressed confidence that the UAE office of MSF, which had been established to disseminate information about the activities of MSF and to raise funds, could play a much greater role if the need arose. The MSF as a humanitarian organisation, often criticised military humanitarian action, through the only means at its disposal, i.e. public opinion, public expression and practical demonstrations of the effectiveness of peaceful and civilian humanitarian action, he said.
