The deputy representative of Togo at the United Nations, Kadangha Limbiyé Bariki (photo) has been participating since saturday in Istanbul to a symposium organized by the Turkish Mission at the UN and in cooperation wit the International Peace Institute, a Think Tank specialized in foreign affairs based in NY and Vienna.
Indeed, foreign affairs will be on the menu for the next two days.
At the moment where the Egyptian people have started the process to designate a successor to Hosni Mubarak, the ambassadors of the UNSC member states, and among them Togo, must draw the lessons of the "Arab Spring". What are the new political realities in the Middle East and in North Africa? What are the consequences for those regions and for the rest of the world?
Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria. Topics of discussions for these nations are not lacking as they all have differing situations.
And is this "Arab Spring" not a harbinger for a rainy autumn and a rigorous winter?
The representatives of the UNSC certainly have a lot to discuss.
