The UAE has called on the UN Security Council and Member States to join in protecting civilians and upholding international law by focusing on prevention to address the root causes of conflict; recognising that regional conflicts require regional solutions; and reinvigorating the Council to ensure that it takes both action in response to conflicts and follows through on its existing resolutions.
At the UN Security Council on Tuesday, the UAE said that the failure of the Council to respond decisively to conflict around the world has exacted a profound human toll, and called for a re-energised unity of purpose within the Council and renewed action to maintain international peace and security. The UAE echoed Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres’ statement that the most effective way to protect civilians is to prevent conflicts and to end them. "In my own region - with the conflict in Syria now entering its 8th year - we are experiencing the challenge of multiple armed conflicts that have severe implications for civilian communities," said Ambassador Lana Zaki Nusseibeh, UAE's Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, at the Open Debate on the protection of civilians in armed conflict chaired by the Foreign Minister of Poland, Jacek Czaputowicz. "These conflicts have in many instances been worsened and prolonged by the Security Council’s failure to act."
