UAE receives 27 UN personnel affected by Kabul attack

posted on 01/11/2009: 671 views



New York - United Arab Emirates yesterday received about 27 members of United Nations staff affected by the terrorist attack that occurred last Wednesday in the Afghan capital Kabul, which killed and wounded a number of United Nations personnel.

The UAE also strongly condemned last night the attack and vowed to continue its support for the crucial role played by the United Nations there to assist in restoring stability and security in Afghanistan.

UAE's condemnation came during the intervention by HE Ahmed Abdul Rahman Al Jarman, Permanent Representative of the UAE to the United Nations before the special meeting convened by the General Assembly at the level of ambassadors last night to hear a briefing by the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon on the latest developments in Afghanistan.

The Ambassador said that the staff was flown to the UAE after granting them urgent entry visas as some of them did not carry necessary travel documents, and the injured among them were given the necessary treatment in hospitals.

He pointed out that the UAE is currently providing the necessary assistance to the United Nations to enable it to issue passports to those staff inspectors to enable them to return home safely in the near future.

He also explained that the Government of the United Arab Emirates responded to the request of the Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to bear part of the efforts made by the Secretariat of the United Nations to contain the results and burdens faced by the international organization by the Kabul attack.

Ambassador Jarman said the United Arab Emirates offers its condolences to the families of the victims and strongly condemns this act, which was aimed at undermining the mandate of the United Nations in Afghanistan.

He reaffirmed the commitment of the UAE to continue its support for the essential role played by the United Nations there to help in restoring stability and security in Afghanistan. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
