Journalists In Djibouti Encouraged To Fight Against AIDS

Djibouti, June 18, 2004 (IJNet) – Despite a relatively low prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the country, Djibouti's Communication and Culture Ministry is encouraging journalists to get more involved in the fight against AIDS.

The ministry conducted a seminar for journalists on May 27 as part of a new campaign to combat the disease. The Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN) - part of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) - reported that 60 journalists attended the seminar in the capital city, Djibouti.
According to IRIN, a 2002 survey found that less than half the population was aware that condom use reduced the risk of transmitting AIDS. A large majority also mistakenly believed that the virus could be passed on by kissing or mosquitoes.

Editorial & Opinions

The Men Around Rayale

On April 14, 2003, Somalilanders elected Mr. Dahir Rayale as their president for a 5-year term. Although he won the presidential poll by barely 213 votes, President Rayale opted not to form a coalition government with the two opposition parties, which together gained roughly 58% of the votes. At the time, the president argued that the ability of KULMIYE and UCID to grow and function as effective opposition parties would be compromised if at such an embryonic stage, they joined the government. On the face of it, the argument was valid.

Ridwan Mohamed Osman, Amoud University Alumnus, B. Sc.

On June 16th of every year, the international community celebrates the Day of the African Child, in which the needs and problems of African children are addressed, past plans reviewed and a way forward illuminated.

The Sovereignty Of Somaliland And Its Role In The Conflict Resolution Of The Region

Farhiya Ali Ahmed, Johannesburg, South Africa

 

Based on this premise, and with these factors in mind, this paper offers a new and different view of the nature of the Somali conflict, and thus its resolution. The focus is on the unrecognized Republic of Somaliland and the possible role an internationally recognized Somaliland could play in resolving the Somali conflict. In any consideration of the Somaliland experience, an analysis of its claims to statehood and the international community’s reluctance to recognize it is important, and as such Somaliland’s case for independence will also be presented here.

Peace Talks

Annan Calls On Somali Leaders To Meet Reconciliation Deadline

UNITED NATIONS, Jun 18, 2004 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Friday urged Somali leaders to show the political will to achieve national reconciliation by the end of July.

In his new report to the UN Security Council, the UN chief said that the active engagement of the Security Council and the Arms Embargo Monitoring Group could provide much-needed support for the peace process in the African country.

He called on parties in the country to agree on procedures leading to reconciliation and the establishment of a transitional federal government by the deadline set by East Africa's Inter- governmental Authority on Development (IGAD).

Broad Somali Govt Can Rebuild Trust-U.N. Official

 

By Tsegaye Tadesse

"The Somalis are no different from other people. They want peace and to get away from the stateless situation," Winston Tubman, the U.N. Secretary-General's special representative for Somalia, told Reuters in an interview.

Somalia descended into anarchy after warlords ousted then military ruler Mohammed Siad Barre in 1991.
