President Faure Gnassingbé landed in New York early this morning. On Tuesday, he will take part to the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
This afternoon, he is supposed to attend a high-level meeting on the rule of law. Without a shadow of a doubt, however, it is Wednesday that promises the busiest of days with a high-level meeting on the Sahel situation, particularly in the Malian section. Togo and the other ECOWAS nations are working on establishing a multinational military force in Mali since half of its territory is in the hands of islamist groups. In the afternoon, the President will give a speech to the General Assembly. In the context of the GA, the President will also meet his African and European counterparts and with members of the UNSC in which Togo holds a seat as a non-permanent member.
