Explanation of vote by Permanent Representative Vassily Nebenzia before voting of 11th Emergency Special Session of UNGA-02/03/2022

The goals of our special operation that was started under Article 51 of the UN Charter, are being pursued and will be achieved. We do not target civil facilities and civilians. Please do not trust the huge amount of fakes on that matter that are spread on the Internet. Those fakes were “cooked like hot cakes” in the information center called “Special Operations Forces”. This center was destroyed yesterday. Peaceful scenario for Ukraine can be expedited if radicals start caring for the lives of their fellow citizens and stop hiding behind them. The draft under our consideration today contains no such call.

76th session of GA, General Debate – Speech by President of the State of Palestine

It is regrettable that the policies of the international community and the decisions of the relevant United Nations bodies regarding a solution for the Question of Palestine have until now not been upheld and implemented, resulting in a failure to hold Israel accountable and sanction it for its violations of international law, allowing Israel, which claims to be a democratic State, to act as a State above the law.

76th session of the GA, General Debate – Speech by Mrs. Erna Solberg, PM of Norway

The decline in democracy and respect for human rights should be of concern to us all. We are seeing grave human rights violations in many parts of the world. In Venezuela. The atrocities and conflict in Tigray. The deteriorating humanitarian and human rights situation in Myanmar, including for the Rohingyas. To mention a few. We count on the Security Council and regional organisations to play a proactive role

Speech of Turkish President at General Debate of 75th Session of UNGA 2020

The Kashmir conflict, which is also key to the stability and peace of South Asia, is still a burning issue. Steps taken following the abolition of the special status of Jammu-Kashmir further complicated the problem. We are in favour of solving this issue through dialogue, within the framework of the United Nations resolutions and especially in line with the expectations of the people of Kashmir.
