The records also contain memoranda exchanged between Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Kofi Annan and Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) Anthony Nyakyi, describing the implementation of the 28 December 1994 Accra Agreement and the 19 August 1995 Abuja Agreement.
