“We all need to learn from everything that has happened. His Excellency and ourselves agreed that there are things we could do better. As far as we are concerned, as far as MONUSCO is concerned, we will obviously look at what we can do better, in a very thorough way. I believe that there is also a commitment on the part of the authorities to look at how the security response particularly must be the best and, above all, better coordinated; because we need it and it has been reaffirmed very strongly, in order to be effective, particularly in the security response but in a global way. It requires a very close partnership, joint planning, joint work that really starts at the first step.”

6. SOUNDBITE (French) Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, United Nations:
“Finally, the last message that was shared with his Excellency was the importance of ensuring that there is no impunity. Because the acts that have been committed in recent days, the attacks on colleagues in the Ebola response, the attacks on the MONUSCO site in Boikene; it is not spontaneous, it has been planned, organized and when I say it is not to minimize the frustration of the suffering population, we all understand that frustration long ago. There are clearly acts that have been premeditated, organized, funded and there must be no impunity. The perpetrators at all levels must be exposed and held accountable.”
