Annan said yesterday (Monday) that the United Nations could help in a peacekeeping role in the DRC if all sides abided by the proposed ceasefire. Annan told French Radio Europe 1 that he hoped in addition to OAU member states, non-African countries would be prepared to assist with an intervention force. The UN Security Council yesterday expressed its readiness to consider the deployment of UN observers and other personnel to support regional security operations it authorises, and to monitor human rights performance.
