Mr. President,

We appreciate the convening of this meeting to discuss the Security Council Annual Report to the General Assembly of 2020, contained in document A/75/2.

The relevance of the Security Council, as an organ mandated by the Charter of the United Nations for the maintenance of international peace and security, requires that the presentation of its annual reports cease to be a formal and uncritical exercise.

Mr. President;

Co-Chairs,

We appreciate the convening of this meeting to address two of the five key issues of the Security Council reform, namely “the categories of membership” and “the question of the veto”.

A few weeks ago, we held the first meeting of Intergovernmental Negotiations on Security Council Reform in this session. The high level of participation in that meeting showed the significance that Member States attach to this matter, and the willingness to discuss it as the only way to reach consensus.

Mr. President,

We support the statement delivered by Azerbaijan on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

A global epidemic has drastically changed everyday life. The effects of COVID-19 demand from us a dynamic, concerted, efficient response, based on complementarity, cooperation and solidarity. The long-desired right of humankind to live in peace and security, with justice and freedom, which is the basis of coexistence among nations, is constantly threatened.

Mr. President,

Our delegation is grateful to you for convening this meeting to discuss the Security Council Annual Report to the General Assembly of 2019, contained in document A/73/2.

Once again, the annual report of such a relevant organ in the maintenance of international peace and security is merely a descriptive account of meetings, activities and decisions of the Security Council, when the vast majority of United Nations Member States have questioned whether this is just a formal and uncritical exercise.
