Afghanistan

Resolution number:

November 1994
Whereas: 
  1. The situation in Afghanistan has continued to deteriorate such that from the capital city of Kabul alone over 1,000 refugees flee daily, and the country is left void of any supporting infrastructure;
  2. Afghanistan remains one of the largest refugee-producing countries as a result of the continuing war;
  3. The U.N. has started a process of discussion and negotiations through a U.N. delegation headed by Mahmood Mestiri with the various factions involved in the Afghan conflict;
  4. Canada is internationally respected for its commitment to peace, and is seen as an important player with a strong voice at the U.N.;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR urge the Canadian government to:

  1. Actively support U.N. efforts and initiatives towards a peaceful resolution of the Afghan conflict,
  2. Take a leading role in rallying international support for Afghanistan;
  3. Increase and strengthen their support of relief aid in Afghanistan through present aid missions such as the International Red Cross.
