Ambassador Sylvie Lucas participates in the open debate of the Security Council on children and armed conflicts

Published Tuesday July 12 2011

In her intervention, the Permanent Representative welcomed the adoption of an additional resolution on the issue of children and armed conflicts and the continued commitment of the Security Council in promoting the protection of children, be it in countries on the agenda of the Security Council or in situations of concern to all of us. She saluted in particular the strengthening of the monitoring mechanism through the possibility for listing of parties to a conflict responsible for attacks against schools and hospitals in the annexes of the SG’s report, and expressed the hope that in due time an equal importance would be given to all grave violations of children’s rights.
