18/12/2014  Lithuania's statement at the UN Security Council debate on UNAMA, Afghanistan

I would like to thank the Special Representative of the Secretary General Nicholas Haysom for his first briefing to the Security Council on the situation in Afghanistan. I extend my delegation’s congratulations to you on assuming the post. We wish you and all UN family on the ground all the success and determination in ensuring continuous support to Afghanistan. [I thank UNODC Executive Director Yury Fedotov for his briefing.]

Lithuania aligns itself with the statement to be made on behalf of the EU.

Mr. President,

Just a few days away, Afghanistan is to turn another page in its history. On 1 January 2015 the responsibility for security in their country will be solely in the hands of Afghans. It is time now to quickly capitalize on the gains made during the last 13 year and advance in tackling the ongoing challenges, be it in political, peace and security, human rights, or economic realms. Robust visionary leadership by President Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Abdullah Abdullah will be essential. Lithuania – a partner of Afghanistan for almost 10 years – was happy to see the reform package presented by the National Unity Government at the London Conference which lays a firm foundation for the development of the country during the transformation decade. We encourage the two leaders to proceed with prompt appointment and confirmation of senior government officials. A strong and truly united government is needed to meet the formidable challenges lying ahead.

16/12/2014  Lithuania's statement at the UN Security Council open debate on UN-African Union partnership and its evolution

I thank the Chadian presidency of the Security Council for organizing this open debate on cooperation between the regional and sub-regional organizations on peace operations, with a focus on UN and AU partnership. It is the third time this year that we discuss the issue of cooperation between the regional and sub-regional organizations in the Council, which only confirms its relevance.

Some 70% of the UN’s Special Political Missions and peace keeping operations are deployed in Africa. The continent’s regional and sub-regional organisations have been actively involved in addressing the multi-layered challenges facing the continent, and their cooperation with the UN and other regional partners, such as the EU, has evolved significantly over the years.

Mr. President,

I thank Ms. Fatou Bensouda, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court for her report and briefing on the situation in Darfur.

Next year it will be 10 years since the referral of the situation in Darfur to the International Criminal Court. Ten years that the people of Darfur have continued to suffer. The ongoing security and humanitarian crisis in Darfur is marked by widespread violence, impunity and displacement.
