Foreign Minister Kalonzo in Pledge Over Somali And Sudan Talks
NAIROBI, 3 MARCH 2003--Kenya is committed to resolving conflicts in Somalia and Sudan even if war breaks out in Iraq.
Foreign Affairs minister Kalonzo Musyoka gave the pledge yesterday, adding that peace initiatives in war-ravaged Somalia and Sudan were going on well.
"We don't want to get to that now because the war has not taken place. If and when it happens we will know what to do," Mr Musyoka said.
His statement came in the wake of concerns raised by French Ambassador to Kenya Pierre Jacquemont that an attack on Iraq would wreck Kenya's initiatives to bring peace to southern Sudan and Somalia.
