Statement to the Red Cross and Red Crescent's 28th international conference - Geneva, Switzerland

Executive Director

No organizations in history have worked harder than the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to maintain the neutrality so essential in the delivery of humanitarian aid. Those of us who work in UN emergency operations have long seen the ICRC as a model to emulate. Wherever I have gone to meet with WFP staff, the admiration for what you do is the same. One of the first questions we ask in planning any emergency operation or assessing any security threat is "What is ICRC is doing?".
