Security Council should be resolute in addressing unauthorized use of force, Cypriot official says at UN meeting
CNA - CYPRUS/Nicosia 14/09/2019 09:19

Small states with a longstanding and ongoing conflict, like Cyprus, absolutely rely on the effectiveness of the Security Council, said Poly Ioannou, the Deputy Permanent Representative of the Republic of Cyprus to the UN. Addressing on behalf of the Republic of Cyprus, on September 12, a discussion on the 2018 Report of the Security Council, at the United Nations General Assembly, Ioannou also said that “the Council should be resolute in recognizing, condemning, and addressing unauthorized use of force.”
We cannot overstate the importance of having a Security Council that is not distracted from focusing purely on threats to peace, the use of force, and conflict resolution, the Deputy Permanent Representative of Cyprus added.
