21/08/2014  LITHUANIA'S STATEMENT AT THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL OPEN DEBATE ON CONFLICT PREVENTION

I would like to thank the United Kingdom for organizing this open debate. I also thank the Secretary-General and the High Commissioner for Human Rights for their briefings. We welcome the adoption of resolution which Lithuania gladly cosponsored.

19/08/2014  LITHUANIA'S STATEMENT AT THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL DEBATE ON PROTECTION OF CIVILIANS

I thank the United Kingdom for organizing this most timely briefing, commemorating the World Humanitarian Day.

With an unprecedented number of Level 3 humanitarian crises and over 50 million refugees and internally displaced in the world, the dedicated service of humanitarian workers could not be more crucial.

As we pay tribute all the humanitarian workers whose selfless and tireless efforts testify to what’s best in our humanity, we must also do our best to make sure that their life-saving work does not exact the ultimate price- the price of their own lives.
