UN envoy urges all sides to quickly agree truce to ease suffering in Aleppo

INTERNATIONAL, 27 August 2016 – Stressing that “time is of the essence” amid the increasingly dire situation in Aleppo, the United Nations Special Envoy for Syria today called for all sides in the conflict to agree by Sunday on allowing aid delivery and repairs for the war-ravaged city's power and water systems to provide some relief for the nearly two million people trapped there. “The UN is ready to move. People are suffering and need assistance. Time is of the essence. All must put the civilian population of Aleppo first and exert their influence now,”underscored Staffan de Mistura in a statement issued earlier today by his Office, which reiterated the UN's longstanding call for 48-hour weekly humanitarian pause in Aleppo. The international community...

Security Council strongly condemns DPRK missile launches

INTERNATIONAL, 27 August 2016 – The United Nations Security Council has strongly condemned the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) launch of a ballistic missile from a submarine on 23 August, which follows a series of recent tests and launches the Council said is a “grave violation” of the DPRK's international obligations and “in flagrant disregard” of repeated calls to halt such activity. In a press statement issued late yesterday evening, the Council also strongly condemned the DPRK's ballistic missile launches conducted on 2 August and 18 July, and the launching of a submarine-launched ballistic missile by the country on 9 July. Council members said this string of recent launches is in grave violation of the DPRK's international obligations under relevant Council resolutions 1718...

Greece facing ‘serious challenges,’ needs EU help to manage refugee crisis – UN agency chief

INTERNATIONAL, 26 August 2016 – Greece still faces great challenges in managing its refugee crisis, particularly if European Union countries do not step up their relocation and family reunion programmes, the head of the United Nations refugee agency said during a recent visit to the country. “The challenges are very serious, and we need to continue to address them together,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said in a news release, citing living conditions, security in refugee sites, and overcrowding on islands. Greece’s shores were the gateway to other EU countries for more than 856,000 refugees and migrants last year, according to the High Commissioner’s Office (UNHCR). Flows have slowed significantly this year, but some 50,000 people remain in the country, with a small...

Situation in Kosovo more stable, but underlying tensions remain – UN envoy

INTERNATIONAL, 25 August 2016 – Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Kosovo Zahir Tanin told the United Nations Security Council today that while opposition parties in Kosovo continue to try to generate, exploit and, if possible, prolong moments of ‘crisis,’ they appear to have become aware that the use of violence is counterproductive to their objective of gaining more political influence. “From my recent talks with top leaders in Kosovo, I have the impression that [they] understand the need to place realism and practicality higher on their political agenda,” said Mr. Tanin in his regular briefing to the Council. “Many have their eyes upon emerging wider trends, and the opportunity these trends offer to seize levers of opportunity, and remove old obstacles, in order...

Liberia: ‘Arduous path to sustainable peace’ requires long-term Security Council engagement – UN envoy

INTERNATIONAL, 25 August 2016 – The United Nations envoy for Liberia today stressed the need for long-term, robust engagement by stakeholders, particularly the Security Council, towards a sustainable peace in the West African country. Briefing the Council, Farid Zarif, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), said many Liberians are concerned about the prospect of the Mission’s withdrawal and potential lack of UN support during the October 2017 presidential and legislative elections. “There is a consensus among national actors that the next elections will be a critical test for Liberia's stability, democracy and development,” Mr. Zarif said, emphasizing that both the Government of Liberia and the international community must not lose sight of the still...
