Tanzania hosts a three-day Meeting on Prevention of Atrocities

During his opening remarks, Hon.

Hon. Chikawe concluded his remarks saying, that the Meeting will produce substantial deliberations which will "contribute to efforts towards collective responsibility on preventing any future genocide tragedy and raise awareness on responsibility to protect hence creating a peaceful world."
