30 December 2003
INTERNATIONAL DAY of REFLECTION on RWANDA GENOCIDE

A motioned tabled in the UN General Assembly by the African Union calling for international reflection on the Rwanda Genocide was adopted by consensus on December 23, 2003. The resolution was co-sponsered by several countries around the globe. Consequently the UN General Assembly has designated April 7 as the International Day of Reflection on the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.

In its resolution, the General Assembly calls upon all member states, 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".

A statement issued by Rwanda's Mission to the UN, says the resolution also "encourages all member states, organisations and other relevant international organisations to consider implementing 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 also 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 that occurred in Rwanda in 1994.
