H. CON. RES. 20
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
October 27, 1999
Received and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations
Concerning economic, humanitarian, and other assistance to the northern
part of Somalia.
Whereas in the area in the northern part of Somalia, referred to as Somaliland
by the elected representatives of the people living there, a significant
level of economic and social stability has been achieved, promising
likely success for international and United States sponsored economic
development and humanitarian programs;
Whereas economic development, humanitarian, and other forms of assistance to the
people of such area from international organizations, the United States,
and other foreign nations, has been diminished, delayed, or canceled due
to questions about the assertion of sovereignty by those people as a
nation separate from Somalia;
Whereas provision of economic development and humanitarian assistance to the
people of such area does not constitute recognition of any particular
claim to sovereignty by any de facto government of the region; and
Whereas the fundamental purpose of economic development, humanitarian, and other
aid is to relieve human suffering: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That the Congress--
(1) urges all international organizations, foreign
countries, and agencies of the United States Government engaged
in economic development, humanitarian, and other forms of
bilateral or multilateral assistance to evaluate the ability of
such assistance to achieve the amelioration of human suffering
in each region of Somalia, including the northern part of
Somalia referred to as Somaliland;
(2) urges the President not to delay, diminish, or cancel
the amounts and kinds of assistance otherwise appropriate to
the people of certain regions in Somalia because conditions may
not be propitious for such assistance in other regions of
(3) urges the President not to delay, diminish, or cancel
the amounts and kinds of such assistance directed toward any
region in Somalia waiting for a permanent resolution of the
efforts now underway to forge a new government for Somalia;
(4) calls upon all Somali parties to continue to work
toward a permanent end to the civil strife there and the
adoption of a permanent governmental structure most conducive
to the well-being and basic human rights of all Somali people;
(5) calls on the President to--
(A) work with the international community to help
bring an end to the suffering of the Somali people and
work toward a negotiated settlement of the Somali
(B) increase the levels of humanitarian assistance
provided to Somalia through local and international
(C) provide funding for demobilization and demining
efforts in Somalia;
