25 January 2018, New York

Maldives Foreign Minister Dr Mohamed Asim has said that "a vote for the Maldives is a vote for hope". Speaking at a reception titled "Maldivian Night", Minister Asim highlighted that the development story of Maldives is not only a testament to the work of Maldivians, but also an achievement for the UN. The United Nations, he said, gave the Maldives a platform, where size and lack of might did not matter, and where every voice could be heard.

The Minister also highlighted the importance of celebrating diversity within the United Nations, saying "it is this diversity of experience and fresh perspectives that it offers that result in the triumph of multilateralism". And that it is the hope and success that the UN brought to the Maldives, that encouraged the Maldives to contribute meaningfully to forging shared solutions that shape our shared destiny. He went on to say, that these are the reasons why the Maldives decided to contest for a non-permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council for the term 2019-2020.

The Security Council should focus on a more holistic approach to conflict resolution, Minister Asim

25 January 2018, New York

Maldives Minister of Foreign Affairs asked the Security Council to focus on a more holistic approach to conflict resolution. Speaking at the United Nations Quarterly Debate on the situation in the Middle East, including the Question of Palestine, Minister Asim presented his views on the need to focus on sustaining peace, maintaining stability and security. To do so, he said, a key approach would be to focus on State building in peacekeeping and peace building efforts. "State failure has the potential to derail any peace process", he said. And in order to do so, the Security Council should look at the wide plethora of tools available across the United Nations system, and not just military options.

Minister Asim also expressed concern about the situation in Palestine, especially with recent developments on the status of Jerusalem. The Minister called on Israel to fully implement the decisions of the Security Council, and respect the legal obligations under the United Nations Charter. On Syria, the Minister noted the need to sustain the positive momentum with the all-Syria congress to be convened at the end of the month.

   

General Assembly to adopt Resolution on Status of Jerusalem

Wednesday, 20 December 2017 23:44

21 December 2017, New York, The General Assembly will consider, and likely will adopt, a Resolution on the Status of Jerusalem at the Tenth Emergency Special Session of the General Assembly to be convened today. The Emergency Special Session is convened following the Security Council's inability to adopt the Resolution on Jerusalem on Monday, 18 December 2017.

The draft Resolution affirms that any decision and actions, which alter the character, status, or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void, and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant Resolutions of the UN Security Council.

The Maldives is a co-sponsor of the draft Resolution, and will deliver a statement at the Emergency Special Session, in which it will reiterate its long held position that the only viable solution to the question of Palestine is for Israel to withdraw from its illegal occupation of Palestine, and help to create conditions for the establishment of an independent and sovereign State of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital, on the Palestinian lands with pre-1967 borders.

New York, 7 November 2017: The Permanent Representative of the Maldives to the United Nations Ambassador Ali Naseer Mohamed said that when the Maldives is elected to the Security Council for the term 2019-2020, the country will, in collaboration with its partners, "build a reservoir of hope, of trust, of credibility, that will redefine the ordering principle in multilateral diplomacy, to one where right will become the might". Ambassador Mohamed delivered the Statement at the debate at the General Assembly today on the "Question of Equitable Representation on and Increase in the Membership of the Security Council and Other Matters Related to the Security Council".

In his Statement, Ambassador Mohamed noted that the UN and the Security Council "were structured according to the needs, and the realities of the time. Yet, that reality has changed most profoundly. The world has changed. The UN has changed. The way we understood security, the means to sustain peace, have changed. We have new members. New approaches. New dimensions. Yet here, in the United Nations Security Council, we persist in our old ways."
