§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Scotland of Asthal)
UN human rights work in Angola is indispensable to securing a lasting peace in that country. We voted in favour of UNSC Resolution 1268 establishing the United Nations office in Angola (UNOA). We strongly support the inclusion of human rights elements within that office. We will be providing funds for the common costs of UNOA in accordance with established UN scales of assessment.
