The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia. More…

"President Taylor noted that there were still different perceptions about the methods used to deal with problems but 'no leader on the planet would any longer support any form of atrocities'. Liberia had condemned such practices in Sierra Leone. Sierra Leone had opted for peace. The sub-region had gone to a great extent to support peace. Those instructed by ECOWAS to find peace had found it. Now the region expected the international community to respect its wishes. There was great concern that the international community would not support the process officially and would also engage in unofficial activities that would undermine the process. It was best not to say any more but to leave it at that."

Well, I'd like you to say a bit more about that, please. What were you hinting at there?
