28/10/2014  Lithuania's statement at the UN Security Council open debate on women, peace and security

Madam President,

We welcome the convening of this open debate by the Argentine Presidency. We thank the Secretary-General for the comprehensive report and the recommendations contained in it. We commend the work and dedication of General, Executive Director of UN Women Ms. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka and her team and thank all the briefers for their valuable contributions today.

Madam President,

Over 50 million people are displaced around the globe, the worst level of displacement since World War II. Afghanistan, Colombia, DRC, Somalia, Central African Republic, Iraq, Sudan, South Sudan and others have seen massive flight of populations for their lives. Syria, with its more than six million IDPs, is the worst humanitarian crisis of this century. In the middle of Europe, too, forced displacements have peaked because of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. Accounting for half of those displaced, women bear the physical and psychological brunt of conflict. To many of them, providing subsistence to their families, procuring firewood and water, taking care of basic sanitary needs- every step outside the displacement camps, and even within the camps, is fraught with very real physical dangers, including sexual violence and rape and a heightened risk of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS.

27/10/2014  Lithuania's statement at the UN General Assembly 1st Committee's thematic discussion on other weapons of mass destruction

Mr. President,

Lithuania aligns itself with the statement 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.

Chemical weapons have been outlawed for almost a century and their use is a serious violation of international law, a war crime and a crime against humanity. Lithuania condemns in the strongest terms the use of chemical weapons in Syria and commends the efforts of international community aimed at ensuring that such attacks would never happen again. In this context, the staff of the OPCW-UN Joint Mission and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons deserve our special gratitude for their devoted, tireless and often very dangerous work.

27/10/2014  Joint Statement of Estonia, Lithuania, Poland and Latvia delivered at the UN General Assembly's 1st Committee's thematic discussion on regional disarmament and security

Mr. Chairman,

I have the honour to speak on behalf of Estonia, Lithuania, Poland and Latvia.

We highly value the importance of developing best practices and exchange of information among countries in the fields of maritime and air traffic. We believe such efforts greatly complement the relevant international law and provide a significant contribution to the building of mutual understanding and confidence. We feel this is especially the case with regard to military vessels and aircraft.
