Statement during the General Debate of the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly First Committee, 2017:

“Civilians continue to be innocent victims of today’s conflicts. Regretfully the use of explosive weapons in populated areas is growing and causing unnecessary suffering, generating displacement and the death of many civilians, including children. 2 Moreover, vital infrastructures and services have been targeted, causing forced displacement and creating additional problems for reconstruction. We need to address effectively this alarming situation.”

Statement during UN General Assembly First Committee General Debate, October 2016

“Protection of civilians in armed conflicts should be one of our priorities. In the last years, in several countries, homes, hospitals, schools and vital infrastructures have been targeted and bombarded. Regretfully explosive weapons have been used also in populated areas, causing unnecessary suffering, generating displacement and the death of many civilians. We urge all parts to refrain from the use of explosive devices in populated areas, so to reduce as much as possible severe injuries and the death of civilians, including children and aid workers.”
