UN designates an International Day to remember Rwanda Genocide:
The United Nations General Assembly has designated 7th April 2004 as the International Day of Reflection on the 1994 Genocide in Rwanda.
In a decision contained in a United Nations General Assembly resolution, the Assembly calls upon all member states of the United Nations, organisations of the United Nations system and other relevant international organisations, to observe the international day “including special observances and activities in memory of the victims of the genocide in Rwanda.”
The resolution also “encourages all Member States, organisations of the United Nations system and other relevant international organisations to consider promoting implementation of the recommendations of the report of the Independent Inquiry (Carlsson Report) into the actions of the United Nations during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.”
The resolution further calls on all states to act in accordance with the Convention for the Prevention and Suppression of the Crime of Genocide in ensuring that there is no repetition of events of the kind which occurred in Rwanda in 1994.
The resolution which was adopted in the General Assembly by consensus on 23rd December 2003, was tabled by Mozambique in its capacity as Chairman of the African Union, upon the recommendation of the Executive Council of the AU which met in Maputo during the 2nd Summit of Heads of State and Government between 8-10 July 2003.
The resolution was co-sponsored by Armenia, Belgium, Canada, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Greece, Kenya, Liechtenstein, Mauritius, Norway, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Switzerland, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, United Kingdom and Zambia.
