Club de Madrid welcomes the appointment of Member Romano Prodi as UNSG Special Envoy for the Sahel

October 16, 2012

In all his positions, including President of the Council of Ministers of Italy and as President of the European Commission, Romano Prodi has shown determination to support democracy and peace across the world, particularly in Africa.

Earlier this year, the Club de Madrid had firmly condemned the coup d’état that took place in Mali and called on all parties to show responsibility to ensure respect for human dignity, democratic principles and the integrity of the country and to guarantee the immediate restoration of constitutional order and the effective holding of the impending democratic elections.

With no further significant progress in Mali and the negative consequences for the region’s stability, the Members of the Club de Madrid see the appointment of Romano Prodi as an opportunity  to enhance international coordination and engagement in support of national and regional efforts to address the root cause of conflict in Mali and in the Sahel. In this sense, Members of the Club de Madrid reiterate their readiness to contribute in any necessary manner to ensure the reestablishment of a ‘democracy that delivers’ in Mali and the Sahel, in line with UN values and resolutions
