After talks between the African Union and the United Nations in New York, Uganda’s ambassador says the African Union is involved in the search and using a wide range of measures. He describes the AU’s involvement as:
…quiet diplomacy, because some of this information, we don’t want it to reach those who abducted the children. There are intensified efforts and a number of countries are helping Nigeria. Now some of those efforts cannot come into the public, but these efforts are there, and we are hoping that these girls can be recovered very soon.
