At a meeting of UN Security Council, initiated by Lithuania, human rights situation in the east of Ukraine and Crimea was discussed on August 8. Lithuania underlined the importance of further monitoring human rights situation in these regions of Ukraine.

08/08/2014  STATEMENT BY LITHUANIA AT THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL MEETING ON HUMAN RIGHTS SITUATION IN UKRAINE

I would like to thank ASG Simonovic for his briefing. OHCHR and OSCE presence on the ground remain essential. Such missions register and report facts on the ground, identify existing gaps in Government policies and, in the case of OHCHR report, offer important recommendations for the Ukrainian Government which are important to follow up on as the country’s leadership is undertaking comprehensive constitutional and administrative reforms necessary for the country to recover after years of corruption and neglect.

07/08/2014  STATEMENT BY LITHUANIA AT THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL DEBATE ON MONUSCO

Allow me to begin by thanking SRSG Martin Kobler, Special Envoy Mary Robinson, and Major General Joao Manuel Gonçalves Louren for their briefings today and for all their dedicated work aimed at advancing peace, stability, and security in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the region.

Recent developments in the Democratic Republic of the Congo offer a window of opportunity and a sense of difference in the region, from improving economic growth to progress in tackling armed groups, including defeat of M23 and actions against ADF. It is paramount that the DRC should continue its efforts to tackle the multiple challenges, in a determined manner, together with regional and international partners, and that the momentum of implementing the framework agreement is maintained.
