Informal Preparatory Meeting on National Reconciliation

A United Nations Economic Commission for Africa-sponsored meeting held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, January 48, 1993. Its purpose was to attempt to settle differences between the warring factions of the Somali Civil War. It led to a formal agreement at the Conference on National Reconciliation in Somalia, but factional fighting continued mostly unabated.
