NEWS AND STATEMENTS
 
17/10/2014  Statement by the Republic of Lithuania at the thematic discussion on Disarmament Machinery

Mr. Chairman, 

Lithuania aligns itself with the statement made by the European Union on behalf of the EU and its Member States. Let me now elaborate on some matters of particular importance to Lithuania. 

Lithuania reaffirms its strong attachment to multilateral approach to non-proliferation and disarmament. We regard the UNGA First Committee, the Conference on Disarmament (CD), the Disarmament Commission (UNDC), the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), and the relevant international treaties and regimes as essential mutually reinforcing elements of the UN Disarmament Machinery.

15/10/2014  Lithuania's statement at the UN General Assembly 69th session, Third Committee, on advancement of women

Madam Chair,

At the outset, please allow me to congratulate you on your election as the chairperson of the Third Committee of the 69th Session of the General Assembly. I want to assure you and your bureau of the cooperation and support of the Lithuanian delegation. We are convinced that, under your leadership, this session will be a full success. 

Lithuania aligns itself with the statement made by the representative of the European Union. 

Lithuania attaches great importance to full and effective implementation of women’s rights. Enhancing women’s participation in political, economic and socio-cultural life has been among the main priorities of Lithuania’s domestic and foreign policy over the past years. Lithuania’s non-permanent membership in the UN Security Council opens new avenues for us to promote and advance international human rights agenda and to further pursue the role of women in peace and security as well as address the challenges women face in armed conflicts and post-conflict situations.

09/10/2014  Lithuania's statement at the UN Security Council briefing on UN peacekeeping operations

Madam President,

I would like to thank Lieutenant General dos Santos Cruz, Major General Kazura and Lieutenant General Singha for their briefings.

Lithuania welcomes this yearly opportunity to hear from UN force commanders on the most pressing challenges in today’s peacekeeping. We value the frank and direct nature of this conversation, conveying concrete proposals based on actual experience on the ground. We would also like to use this opportunity to express our appreciation of your service under increasingly demanding and challenging circumstances. On your sound judgement hinges the successful implementation of mandates, and also the lives of the peacekeepers and those they seek to protect.

Let me briefly touch upon the three topics selected for today’s discussion.

07/10/2014  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania expresses its concern over the Israeli Government’s plans to expand settlements

Lithuania strongly supports a two-state solution where the State of Israel and State of Palestine live side by side in peace and security. Any unilateral actions are detrimental to peace process and threaten the viability of the two-state solution.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania is concerned about the Israeli Government’s decision to approve a plan for a new settlement activity in  the East Jerusalem area of Givat Hamatos. The European Union has a longstanding and unambiguous position on Israeli settlements. Expansion of settlements is illegal under international law and hinders efforts for peace. We call on the Government of Israel to review this decision and put an end to its settlement policy in East Jerusalem and in the West Bank.
