Time in Maldives:

The Maldives emphasises the importance of unique political, economic and social circumstance of host countries in the operation of Special Political Missions

Fazeel27 October 2016, New York; During the United Nations General Assembly Fourth Committee debate on the Comprehensive Review of the Special Political Missions, the Maldives noted the important role of Special Political Missions in furthering the global peace and security agenda, and, in particular, the United Nations conflict-prevention and peacebuilding efforts. 

On behalf of the Maldives delegation, Mr. Ahmed Fazeel, Director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, underscored that it is no longer sufficient to simply bringing an end to the armed conflicts, but that States should actively work to prevent conflict and consolidate peace in post-conflict situations through building institutional capacities.

The Maldives emphasized that the mandates of special political missions must be crafted and implemented through consultations and processes that are inclusive, in line with fundamental principles of the United Nations Charter, which are inter-alia impartiality, objectivity, inclusivity, respect for national sovereignty and non-interference in the internal affairs of States. The statement further urged to take into account the unique capacities, limitations, and conditions of host nations, noting that a "one-size-fits-all approach will simply fail to suffice".
