Statement during the June 2015 Security Council Open Debate on Children and Armed Conflict:

“In Yemen, Iraq and Palestine, children are losing their lives as the result of air strikes and the use of explosive weapons in densely populated settings.”

Statement during the August 2013 Security Council Open Debate on the Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict:

“My delegation also calls on other parties to the conflict to restrict themselves from employing heavy weapons and explosive munitions that have been known to inflict untold misery, deaths and injuries to civilians. “

Statement during the February 2013 Security Council Open Debate on the Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict:

“It has been reported that, as a rule, 84 per cent of casualties resulting from the use of explosive weapons in populated areas are civilians. As we deplore the killing of civilians, the Council should ask if we have done enough to protect them. The world will judge us on both counts — that is, what we have done and what we have not done to protect innocent civilians.”
