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.

11/12/2014  It is necessary to investigate and ensure accountability for human rights violations in Ukraine, say participants of the discussion at the UN

The Permanent Mission of Lithuania to the United Nations together with non-governmental organizations in the margins of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court on 11 December held a roundtable discussion on the role of the International Criminal Court in ensuring accountability for the ongoing human rights violations in Ukraine.

“The violations of international human rights and humanitarian law in parts of Ukraine under the control of armed pro-Russian groups are in the centre of attention of the United Nations and other international organizations. The international community must also place in the spotlight the deteriorating human rights situation in occupied Crimea. It is necessary to investigate and ensure accountability for human rights violations in Ukraine,” said Permanent Representative of Lithuania, Ambassador Raimonda Murmokaitė at the meeting.

11/12/2014  Statement by Lithuania at the UN Security Council debate on peace and security in Africa, Sahel

I thank the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for the Sahel, Ms Hiroute Guebre Sellassie, for her briefing on the progress towards implementation of the United Nations Integrated Strategy for the Sahel. I also wish to commend the United Nations Office for West Africa (UNOWA) for its dedicated efforts in the Sahel. 

It is encouraging that the UN, as well as the AU and ECOWAS have developed integrated strategies addressing the multiple challenges of the Sahel. These strategies must be operationalized in a coordinated manner to ensure the most effective impact on the security, governance and the resilience of countries in the Sahel region.
