International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement has been working
for some years towards a solution to the problems faced by countries
which cannot use the emblems established by the Geneva Conventions.
issues are complex and legal, but of relevance to all members of
the Movement and to Society membership in many countries.
The process now in place for the establishment of an additional
protective Emblem and the ability of National Societies to place
within it certain indicative emblems has been the subject of careful
consultation with all interested governments and National Societies.
A consensus has emerged to create another emblem process, and to
achieve this early this year.
This means that the conditions for the recognition and admission
of Israel's Magen David Adom and the Red Cross Society of Eritrea
will be set in time for both to become a full part of the Movement
in the near future.
The Movement as a whole sees the resolution of the problems as a
matter of great importance.
