Tomorrow (29 August), the Security Council is expected to adopt a resolution on the protection of humanitarian personnel. The resolution is a follow-up to the 19 August open briefing with Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson, ICRC President Peter Maurer and Masood Karokhail, director and co-founder of the Afghan non-governmental organisation, The Liaison Office, to mark World Humanitarian Day. During this meeting, the UK announced that it would propose a new draft resolution on how the Council can better protect humanitarian workers. At press time the negotiated text was under silence until 9 a.m. tomorrow morning (29 August). It appears that Russia asked for an extension of the initial silence procedure deadline from 11 am today to 9 am tomorrow morning to have more time to consult with capital, but the expectation at press time was that silence would not be broken and that an adoption was still possible at some point tomorrow.
