Status of Aid to Malawi (Taken Question)

Taken Question
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
July 25, 2011


QUESTION: Any plans to stop aid to Malawi? Is the Millennium Challenge Compact at risk?

ANSWER: As we said in our statement, the United States strongly condemns the use of force by Malawian authorities on July 20 to prevent peaceful demonstrations, as well as the ban imposed on all private radio stations reporting on the demonstrations. The U.S. government is deeply concerned by this week’s events in Malawi and calls into question the government’s commitment to good governance principles as captured by MCC’s scorecard. In light of this week’s events, MCC is closely monitoring the actions of the Government of Malawi and reviewing MCC operations.
