The Secretary-General thanked CEB members for their strong commitment to ensuring coordinated system-wide response. With regard to Mali, the Secretary-General had, in a telephone conversation earlier in the day, assured the President of full mobilization of the UN system. In addition to dispatching Dr. Chan and Dr. Sidibé, the Secretary-General had designated the WHO Country Director as the temporary representative in Mali, pending the establishment as soon as possible of an UNMEER mission there. The President was appreciative of these efforts which he considered were in a right direction. The Secretary-General concluded the session by underlining the reaffirmed unity of purpose and collective determination, adding that at the press encounter he would convey this as the session’s key outcome.
