HC statement at Security Council briefing on The Situation In Burundi 9 July
In Burundi, the High Commissioner told the Security Council, an "escalating pattern of politically motivated violence", coupled with a history of recurring bloodshed and atrocities, should alert the international community to the potential for serious crisis. "Already more than 145,000 people have fled to neighbouring countries, and this movement has increased drastically in recent days. As they pack the few belongings they can carry, and abandon their lands and homes, what the people of Burundi are telling us is that they fear their country is on the brink of devastating violence. The risk to human life, and to regional stability and development, is high."

Remarks to the Security Council meeting on Bosnia and Herzegovina (Srebrenica)

They include an inability to anticipate events and timidity. "So long as there is no respect for the UN, it will be likely that further massacres will be perpetrated," he stated. "At the very least, if the UN is to make good on its commitment to protect civilians, it must be resolute, undivided and clear about its intention."
