Government officials in Burkina Faso said in a statement that the country has taken steps to ensure that international sanctions are respected following a U.N. report accusing the West African country of helping Angola’s UNITA rebels.

The government formed a committee to oversee implementation of U.N. resolutions concerning Angola and instructed the security forces to step up measures to ensure that sanctions against UNITA aren’t violated, but it did not provide details of how this was to be done. According to a statement the moves reflect the government’s “firm determination” to respect U.N. decisions concerning Angola. The U.N. report has prompted opposition calls for President Compaore’s resignation.
