UN Security Council to Consider Piracy Thursday

According to Businessweek:

China, as president of the Security Council this month, plans to lead a meeting on March 10 to call for a more comprehensive international strategy for dealing with political instability, piracy and the threat posed by the Islamic al- Shabaab militia. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is scheduled to brief the council on the latest developments.

This is a follow-up to Jack Lang’s report of 25 January 2011 which was the subject of a previous post. At that time, Lang was hoping for a Security Council Resolution by the end of February. With all of the events in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, etc., the SC has had its hands full. Notwithstanding other pressing issues, apparently China saw fit to add piracy to the schedule.
