Madagascar: Speech of His Excellency Marc Ravalomanana
31 March 2009
I would like to thank His Majesty King Mswati the Third (III) and President Motlanthe for convening this extraordinary SADC summit.
On different occasions, SADC has assessed the situation on the ground and made its report to both His Majesty and President Motlanthe.
The Ministerial mission, led by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Swaziland, could also assess the situation, which was already very tense.
