THE INTERVIEW

Latest update : 2014-02-04

Samantha Power, US Ambassador to the United Nations

The United Nations Security Council has called on Mali’s government to conclude talks with Tuareg rebels as soon as possible – or risk facing a growing security threat. Members of the council visited Mali at the weekend to assess the situation in the West African nation, a year after France sent in troops to drive back al Qaeda-linked Islamist fighters.

France 24’s Douglas Herbert discussed the Mali mission with Samantha Power, a former journalist and human rights defender recently named by Barack Obama as the US ambassador to the United Nations. Power also discussed UN efforts to get humanitarian aid through to besieged civilians in Syria, as well as the spiralling violence in the Central African Republic.
