Missions by the President
In July and August 1992 ICRC President Cornelio Sommaruga went on several missions as part of the intense diplomatic activity that developed with regard to the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. (See also “The ICRC and the conflict in the former Yugoslavia”, pp. 488–491.) In addition, he paid an official visit to Poland and spoke at the inaugural session of training courses at two institutions. On both occasions his address served to convey the ICRC's humanitarian message.
