UNSC On Russia Ukraine War : Ukraine War UN Security Council Backs Guterres Peace Efforts

Washington : The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has unanimously approved its first statement on Ukraine since the start of Russia’s “special military operation” on 24 February, calling on Secretary-General Antonio António to seek a peaceful solution to the 10-week “conflict”. Guterres has expressed “strong support” for his efforts. The words ‘war’, ‘struggle’ or ‘attack’ are not mentioned in the president’s brief statement approved at the UNSC meeting on Friday. In fact, many members of the council refer to it as Russia’s military action or ‘special military operation’. Russia also mentions it in this context.

Russia enjoys veto power in the powerful UNSC and has blocked all previous attempts to adopt the president’s statement, which requires a consensus or resolution. Instead, the statement expressed “deep concern about the peace and security system in Ukraine and reminded that all member states undertake to settle their international disputes by peaceful means under the Charter of the United Nations”.

The United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross have so far conducted two successful evacuation operations in Mariupol and the surrounding areas. They are currently carrying out the third evacuation operation from the Mariupol Steel Plant. Responding to the council’s statement, Guterres said, “Today, for the first time, the Security Council spoke in one voice for peace in Ukraine.” As I have often said, the world must lay down arms and come together to uphold the values ​​of the United Nations Charter.’

Norway’s ambassador to the United Nations, Mona Juul, and Mexico’s ambassador Juan Ramón de la Fuente Ramírez (whose countries have drafted the council’s statement) called it an important step towards diplomatic efforts to end the war.
