United Nations Secretary-General
H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon
24 September 2014

Disarmament, militarism: “Disarmament is viewed as a distant dream, sabotaged by profiteers of perpetual warfare.”

Explosive weapons in populated areas: “It has been a terrible year for the principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter. From barrel bombs to beheadings, from the deliberate starvation of civilians to the assault on hospitals, UN shelters and aid convoys, human rights and the rule of law are under attack.”

Chemical weapons: The unity of the Security Council is crucial. When the Security Council acts as one, we see results, such as the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons programme.”

Military spending: “When resources are devoted to ever more sophisticated arms instead of ever greater human potential, we are all less secure.”

Nuclear weapons, WMD, disarmament, non-proliferation, nuclear energy: “The Ninth Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons must be able to focus on the narrow goals of complementarity disarmament, non-proliferation, and promoting peaceful uses of the atom. Much remains to be done to free the world of weapons of mass destruction.”

Armenia
H.E. Mr. Serzh Sargsyan, President
24 September 2014

Explosive weapons in populated areas: “The Resolutions  [the UN Security Council Resolutions] contained calls upon the parties to cease bombardments and air strikes targeting the peaceful civilian population, to refrain from violating the principles of the international humanitarian law but instead Azerbaijan continued its indiscriminate bombardments of the civilian population. Azerbaijan did not spare children, women and old persons thus gravely violating all legal and moral norms of the international humanitarian law.”

Austria
H.E. Mr. Sebastian Kurz, Federal Minister for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs
27 September 2014

Nuclear weapons: “Some people have claimed that Ukraine would not be in this situation, had it not given up its nuclear weapons. This kind of thinking is dangerous. And we have to ask ourselves: Where would this lead us? As long as nuclear weapons exist, the risk of their use - on purpose or by accident - remains real. Let us be clear: nuclear weapons have the potential of ending life on this planet more than any other human action. And let us not forget that 69 years after Hiroshima and Nagasaki the humanitarian consequences of a single nuclear explosion are terrifying and long-lasting. The desire to prevent the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons should unite us all. We therefore hope that the next Conference on this subject - to be held in Vienna in December 2014 - will mark a real change of direction in international discussions on nuclear weapons.”

Bahamas (The)
H.E. Mr. Frederick A. Mitchell, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Immigration
30 September 2014

Arms trade: “We deposited the instrument for the Arms Trade Treaty, which helped to bring the number of countries to fifty (50) and so caused the Treaty to enter into force.”

Small arms and light weapons, arms trade: “The Bahamas has been grappling with serious crimes in our society, related, in large measure, to the inability of young males to settle disputes without regard to violence, and the resultant proliferation of gang activity and illicit drugs, small arms and light weapons, and ammunition trafficking. The Bahamas was, therefore, actively involved in the negotiations leading to the successful adoption of the Arms Trade Treaty and considered its adoption a landmark accomplishment of the UN. The Government believes the entry into force of the ATT will contribute to peace and security in The Bahamas. We deposited the Instrument of Ratification of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas to the Arms Trade Treaty on 25h September, 2014.”

Bahrain
H.E. Mr. Shaikh Khalid Bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa, Minister for Foreign Affairs
29 September 2014

WMD, nuclear weapons, nuclear energy:“In view of our keen interest in working hard to achieve our principal goal which is to keep humanity from the scourges of wars, conflicts and disasters, and to reject attempts of hegemony and destabilization, we reiterate our call to make the Middle East, including the Arab Gulf region, a region free of weapons of mass destruction, notably nuclear weapons. Based on this principle, we support the efforts of the 5+1 group with a view to reaching a swift solution to the Iranian Nuclear programme, consistent with the provisions of the Non-proliferation Treaty and the Convention on Nuclear Safety, without prejudice to use of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes which is a natural right for all states within the international system of safeguards.”

Militarism: “Where the US intervene destruction, hate, misery and death are left behind, but it also leaves richness in the hands of those who benefit from the wars: the transnationals of the armament and oil industry.... The empire of the armament industry has to succumb to give place for the wisdom of life, the harmony of life and peace.”

Brazil
H.E Dilma Rousseff, President
24 September 2014

Militarism: “The use of force is incapable of eliminating the underlying causes of conflict. This is made clear by the persistence of the Question of Palestine; the systematic massacre of the Syrian people; the tragic national destructuring of Iraq; the serious insecurity in Libya; the conflicts in the Sahel; and the clashes in Ukraine. Each military intervention leads not to peace, but to the deterioration of these conflicts. We witness a tragic proliferation in the numbers of civilian victims and humanitarian catastrophes. We cannot allow these barbaric acts to increase, harming our ethical, moral and civilizational values. [...] The Security Council has been having difficulties in promoting peaceful solutions to those conflicts. A genuine reform of the Security Council is necessary to overcome the current paralysis. This process has been dragging on for too long.”

Cyber security: “It is essential that measures be taken to effectively protect human rights, not only offline but also online, as stated by the resolution on privacy in the digital age adopted by this General Assembly last year. Brazil and Germany promoted an important discussion on this matter in 2013. We intend to deepen it during this session. The report prepared by the High Commissioner for Human Rights will provide the basis for an evaluation of this issue. One year ago, I proposed the creation of a civil rights framework for the governance and use of the Internet, based on the principles of freedom of expression, privacy, net neutrality and cultural diversity. I am pleased to note that the international community has engaged, since then, in enhancing the current governance architecture of the Internet. An important step in this process was the holding, at Brazil's initiative, of the Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance - NETmundial - in Sao Paulo, this April. The meeting brought together stakeholders from different regions of the world. discussions were held on the principles to follow and actions to undertake in order to guarantee that the Intemet will continue to develop in an open, democratic, free, multistakeholder and multilateral manner.”

H.E. Mr. Rosen Plevneliev, President
24 September 2014

Arms trade: “The adoption of the Arms Trade Treaty was a major achievement of the international community. Just over a year later, the threshold of fifty ratifications has been reached this morning. I am glad that my country is among those fifty states that have made the entry into force of this important legal instrument a reality. The Arms Trade Treaty fills a serious gap in international law. It establishes regulations for trade in conventional arms at global level. Now, its implementation and universalization are of utmost importance.”

Burkina Faso
H.E. Mr. Djibrill Ypènè Bassolé, Minister for Foreign Affairs
29 September 2014

Disarmament, nuclear weapons, conventional weapons, arms trade: “... will be in vain without dealing with disarmament, therefore all of the sacrifices must be made so that together we will achieve a world which is free of nuclear weapons, so we will have a reduction of the risks of proliferation of conventional weapons as well as entry into force and universalization of the ATT.”  [Unofficial translation]

Central African Republic
H.E. Ms. Catherine Samba-Panza
27 September 2014

Disarmament, arms trade: “I would ask the great understanding ... the Sanctions Committee for the arms embargo to be reconsidered in Central African Republic. Parallel to this, it is also urgent to get out of Brazzaville forum which resulted in the signing of an agreement to cease hostilities, to go disarmament of all armed groups, a sector reform of the defense and of security and especially to the implementation of the program of disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR).... To enable better living together among all Central, I always put on disarmament ... hearts and minds for a true national reconciliation.”

Small arms and light weapons, arms trade: “In the same way, the Central African Republic is against the proliferation of small arms and small arms that continue to be the subject of illegal trade and supplying the most dramatic conflicts in the world, particularly in Africa while. The Central African Republic commended the efforts made to achieve a signature of the treaty on the arms trade and the adoption of resolution 2117 (2013) of the Security Council on non-proliferation of small arms and small arms which it expects effective enforcement in its territory.” [Unofficial translation]

Nuclear energy, nuclear weapons: “The negotiations on the Iranian nuclear issue have entered a crucial stage. All parties should show sincerity, make further efforts in the spirit of mutual respect, equality, coordination and mutual accommodation, and work hard to tackle the most difficult issue, so as to reach an early and win-win agreement that is comprehensive, fair and balanced.”

Nuclear weapons: “Regarding the Korean Peninsula, China calls on all parties to act in an objective and impartial way, remain committed to the goal of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, firmly uphold peace and stability on the peninsula, and endeavor to resolve the issues through dialogue and consultation. The Six Party Talks remain the only viable and effective way to resolve the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula. The pressing task now is to restart the talks as soon as possible. The Korean nuclear issue should be dealt with by a sustainable, irreversible and effective dialogue process which addresses the concerns of all parties in a comprehensive and balanced way. There are still many uncertainties on the Korean Peninsula today. The parties concerned should all exercise restraint, refrain from making provocations, do more things that will help ease tension, and jointly uphold peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.”

Costa Rica
H.E. Mr. Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera, President
24 September 2014

Conventional weapons and arms trade treaty: “Because silence is not an option for us, we repudiate the transfer of conventional weapons into existing conflict zones. As one of the world leaders in the negotiation that led to the Arms Trade Treaty - an idea originally proposed by Ex-President Oscar Arias Sanchez, Noble Peace Prize laureate - we urge States to examine their laws and policies regulating the transfer and availability of arms and munitions, with a view to preventing access to them by those who will probably use them for violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.

“Trading with death is to be an accomplice to its atrocities. In this regard, it would be appropriate to ask ourselves: what is the ethical – not legal or regulatory – difference between trading arms that kill young people in less-developed countries and trading drugs that do the same thing in the planet’s richest countries?”

Explosive weapons in populated areas: “Because silence is not an option for us, Costa Rica repudiates the use of explosive weapons in densely populated areas of Syria, Gaza and east Ukraine. Costa Rica urgently calls on the States to develop stricter rules and commitments to prohibit and restrict their use, not only because they are a violation of international humanitarian law, but also because taking action on this issue, here and now, is critical to reducing the incentives to non-combatants to take up arms and join the extremists.”

Cluster munitions: “Because silence is not an option for us, we also condemn the use of cluster munitions in Syria, South Sudan and Ukraine. As the host of the Fifth Meeting of States Parties to the Convention on Cluster Munitions, which took place in San Jose from September 2nd to 5th, my country will continue to repudiate the manufacture, use and trade of these weapons. We celebrate that Central America has now become the first region in the world to be declared free of cluster munitions and reiterate our commitment to continue promoting this Convention's universalisation.”

Nuclear weapons: “Because silence is not an option for us, we reiterate our rejection of nuclear weapons. No State should develop or possess nuclear weapons. Maintaining and modernizing nuclear weapons requires immense economic and human resources that are necessary for responding to the key challenges of our time, such as achieving the Millennium Development Goals and the Sustainable Development Goals. Costa Rica is ready to negotiate a new legally binding instrument for nuclear disarmament and we call on the States to comply with their commitments in this regard.”

Croatia
H.E. Mr. Ivo Josipović, President
25 September 2014

Chemical weapons: “Croatia also commends the unprecedented international effort aimed at the destruction of the chemical weapons of the Syrian Arab Republic. The OPCW-UN Joint Mission successful work demonstrates how indispensable the role of the United Nations is.”

Landmines: “Croatia will continue providing assistance to the most vulnerable. Especially considering that we have rich expertise at programmes for building up resilience in humanitarian crisis, raising awareness of the dangers of land mines and other unexploded ordinances of war and providing psycho-social support to victims of violence.”

Non-proliferation, WMD, nuclear weapons: “The situation in the world brings the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the centre of attention. In this regard, the 2015 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons is of a particular importance, and Croatia wishes that the Treaty is reinforced and strengthened by the outcomes of the Conference.”

Cuba
H.E. Mr. Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Minister for Foreign Affairs
27 September 2014

Arms trade, military spending, nuclear weapons, conventional weapons: “We live in a globalized world which moves on towards multi-polarity in an era characterized by a threat to the survival of the human species. Neither the US government nor NATO would be able to reverse that trend by a new distribution of the world through the use of arms. However, but there is a serious risk that, in attempting to do that, the world becomes an ungovernable place. The huge nuclear and conventional arsenals accumulated, the imposed annual military expenditures amounting to 1 trillion 750 billion dollars and the 2 per cent increase of the military budget's share of the GDP required from all NATO member States will be of no use to cope with or eradicate poverty, hunger, epidemics, migration waves or avert the water, energy, food, environmental and global economy crisis.”

Cyber security: “It is necessary to reject the militarization of cyberspace, the illegal and covert intervention of the information systems of some countries with the purpose of using them to perpetrate aggressive actions against third countries and stir up conflicts; as well as the global espionage on governments and entire societies.”

Explosive weapons, militarism: “The US government is infringing upon International Law when it launches, in contempt for the United Nations Organization, unilateral bombings with complete disregard for national borders or sovereign States, even if it dissembles them under doubtful coalitions.”

Disarmament: “The solemn Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace, which was signed by the Heads of State and Government of the region, consecrates the respect for the principles and rules of International Law; the promotion of a culture of peace, nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament; as well as the inalienable right of every State to choose its political, economic and social system.”

Cyprus
H.E. Mr. Nicos Anastasiades, President
26 September 2014


WMD: “Naturally, besides and beyond these regional conflicts, we should be vigilant and remind ourselves that other conventional and non-conventional challenges pose existential dangers which we have yet to tackle. These include, amongst others, human trafficking, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, global poverty, hunger and distress that intensify migration flows and create demographic changes, and epidemic spreads, such as the recent example of Ebola.”

“We are at the forefront of efforts to fight terrorism and human trafficking, the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and to provide humanitarian aid and facilities when deemed necessary.”

Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
H.E. Mr. Ri Su Yong, Minister of Foreign Affairs
27 September 2014

Militarism: “The present reality shows that, in lieu of the Security Council still mired in paralysis of the Cold War, a permanent member state seeks to act as military police of the world through military blocs or bilateral military alliances that have nothing to do with UN.”

Nuclear weapons: “The nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula is a matter of sovereignty and right to life of a UN member state before peace and security. The hostile policy, nuclear threat and stifling strategy pursued by the United States for more than half a century inevitably resulted in the decision of nuclear weapons state of the DPRK. The nuclear deterrent of the DPRK is not intended to threaten or attack others. Neither is it a bargaining chip to be exchange for something else. The nuclear issue will be resolved if and when the threat to our sovereignty and right to life is removed in substance with termination of the US hostile policy against the DPRK.”

H.E. Mr. Toomas Hendrik Ilves
24 September 2014

Cyber security: “Free speech remains a crucial right. Some states have made efforts to stop the free flow of information on the Internet and to divide cyber space along state borders. This must be avoided. The Internet must remain a universal platform for uninhibited exchange of information. Estonia is a proud member of the Freedom Online Coalition, a community of 23 nations committed to promoting free speech online and the multi-stakeholder model of a free and open Internet. It is a global initiative that brings together governments, NGOs, entrepreneurs and think tanks. Last April the Freedom Online Coalition gathered in our capital and issued the Tallinn Agenda, a statement expressing our strongly shared conviction that all people are entitled to the same rights and freedoms, online as well as offline. This is not a lifestyle question. The Internet is a driver of economic growth and a key tool for development. Since the 1990s it has blossomed into a global network of nearly three billion users. Most of the next billion Internet users will come from developing countries. The UN post 2015 Development Agenda should recognize the importance of new technologies and e-services as a major contribution to the security and prosperity of the world. As we grow more dependent on digital services in our daily lives, we become more vulnerable to cyber attacks. Cyber security is essential not just for protecting rights, but also for economic prosperity. Cyber attacks can paralyze crucial services or infrastructure, they can cause enormous economic damage. Limiting access to or censoring the contents of the Internet, however, is not the answer to cyber insecurity.”

We must remain vigilant. In order to fulfill its UN commitments as well as to comply with the CWC (Chemical Weapons Convention), Syria must take further action.”
