  1st Session
H. CON. RES. 20



                            October 27, 1999

      Received and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations


                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

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;
                    (D) provide assistance in the health and education 
                sectors of Somalia; and
                    (E) work with other donor groups to assist the 
                people of Somalia in reconstruction and development.

            Passed the House of Representatives October 26, 1999.
