UAE takes part in international efforts to ensure safety of UN staff in Afghanistan

posted on 14/11/2009: 742 views



New York - The UAE has pledged before the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to participate in the regional and international efforts to provide security for UN staff in Afghanistan through hosting a number of staff in the UAE due to unstable security situation there.

The remark was carried in a speech delivered by HE Ahmed Abdul Rahman Al Jarman, UAE Permanent Representative to UN, before special meeting held by the UNSC on Friday to discuss ways of protecting civilians in cases of armed conflicts.

Al Jarman reiterated that the UAE stance stems from its commitment to provide security to civilians during the armed conflicts, calling on the international community to boost regional and international cooperation in this respect.

He added that despite the important steps taken by UNSC over the last decade to improve protection of the civilians during the armed conflicts through issuance of four historic resolutions and statements, specifying basic measures to tackle this issue, yet the international community still witnesses thousands of civilians, particularly children and women suffer and face acute humanitarian problems at the conflict zones. Al Jarman noted the situation exacerbates at the conflict zones, because parties in the conflict do not adhere to their commitments over protection of civilians as per the international law in this regard.

The UAE official said his country condemned with strong terms possible the intended attacks on civilian and use of random disproportionate military force against the civilians.



Al Jarman noted that the UAE welcomes the recent resolution number 10/64 adopted by the UN General Assembly, on the facts finding commission of war crimes against humanity inflicted by Israel in Gaza Strip, hoping that appropriate action would be taken to put pressure on Israel to allow further international investigations to ensure accountability and justice within three months.

He added that the UAE backs the procedures taken by UN recently in Afghanistan to ensure safety of the UN staff there, urging the international community, particularly the UN organisations to offer technical assistance to the host countries to enable them track down perpetrators.

Al Jarman called for consultations and coordination between the international bodies and the countries, which contribute police in the areas of monitoring, accurate reporting of information and provision of resources to boost capacity to better protect the missions. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
