‘The stench of hypocrisy’
Thursday 23 February 2012
An international summit on Somalia in London today will do nothing to ease the plight of the Somali people and carries the “stench of hypocrisy,” peace campaigners claimed today.
Representatives of more than 50 countries and international organisations attended the event at Lancaster House, including United Nations secretary general Ban Ki Moon, US secretary of state Hillary Clinton and the leaders of neighbouring African nations.
Prime Minister David Cameron said it was in the interests of the international community to help restore stability after two decades of turmoil.
He welcomed the decision by the UN security council to increase the strength of the African Union force in the country from 12,000 to 17,700 troops.
But Stop the War Coalition convener Lindsey German said: “They are pretending that the Western-backed government has legitimacy and made things more stable. But all the evidence shows that Western-backed interventions have contributed to instability.
“There is a massive amount of intervention already going on and this event has the stench of hypocrisy.
“This is yet another example of the government thinking it has the right to dictate what’s happening in other countries when it might be better concentrating on domestic problems.”
Somali government officials said today that at least six people were killed in an overnight air raid a day after world leaders in London said the war-torn country should “quickly form a stable government”: here.
