Consiliul de Securitate al ONU, ședință de urgență după anunțul lui Trump privind Ierusalimul

Consiliul de Securitate al ONU va avea vineri o şedinţă de urgenţă, la cererea a opt state membre ale organismului, pentru a discuta despre statutul Ierusalimului, după decizia preşedintelui SUA, Donald Trump, de a recunoaşte Ierusalimul drept capitala Israelului, relatează CNN, potrivit Mediafax.

Mai mulţi diplomaţi au precizat că opt state au cerut întrunirea de urgenţă a Consiliului de Securitate, printre care Franţa, Bolivia, Egipt, Italia, Senegal, Suedia, Marea Britanie şi Uruguay.

”Misiunile Boliviei, Egiptului, Franţei, Italiei, Senegalului, Suediei, Marii Britanii şi Uruguayului cer preşedinţiei nipone a Consiliului de Securitate să organizeze o reuniune de urgenţă a Consiliului înainte de sfârşitul săptămânii”, potrivit unui comunicat emis de misiunea Suediei la ONU.

Decizia privind reuniunea Consiliului de Securitate al ONU vine în contextul în care preşedintele american, Donald Trump, a anunţat, miercuri seară, că recunoaşte oraşul Ierusalim drept capitală a Israelului, afirmând că decizia constituie "o nouă abordare" în efortul de soluţionare a conflictului israelo-palestinian. Trump a argumentat că în ultimele decenii preşedinţii Statelor Unite au evitat, din diverse raţiuni, să recunoască Ierusalimul drept capitală a Israelului.

Ambasadorul Boliviei la ONU, Sacha Soliz, a spus că decizia SUA "contravine dreptului internațional și rezoluțiilor Consiliului de Securitate".

În Rezoluția 2334, adoptată la 23 decembrie 2016, Consiliul de Securitate "subliniază că nu va recunoaște nicio modificare a frontierelor de la 4 iunie 1967, inclusiv în ceea ce privește Ierusalimul, cu excepția celor convenite de părți pe calea negocierilor".

Statele Unite, conduse atunci de președintele democrat Barack Obama, s-au abținut, permițând adoptarea acestei rezoluții.

Korean Civil Society Seeks Solidarity for Peace in Korea and Globe

Press Release

On November 25th, 1,200 social representatives including youth and religious leaders were gathered in “1st Peace Conference of Religious Leaders in Southeastern and Southwestern Regions for the Reunification of Korea” to discuss spreading a culture of peace and preparing action plans for peaceful unification of the two Koreas in Daegu Metropolitan City, South Korea.

Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) under the UN ECOSOC that organized this conference delivered his speech on the need for peaceful unification of Korea through the leadership of civil society with the German case.

“The Korean peninsula was forced to be divided and regulations that separated this peninsula were established. Then is unification possible with politics and law? The unification of Germany was possible when people gathered to hold a peaceful candlelight rally.”

He emphasized individual participation in the work of peace. “To achieve peace, every individual in our global community should be a messenger of peace,” he said.

At the conference, Gi Woong Son, President of Korea Institute for National Unification, advised that policy making towards North Korea be oriented to induce peaceful unification by opening eyes and ears of the people in the country with the value of freedom, democracy, human rights and welfare.

Emphasizing the role of civil society in peacebuilding, he said, “Consistent efforts for reaching North Koreans through humanitarian approaches including religion, culture, art, sports and environment should be carried out. These areas can avoid transferability of capital misused for military capabilities of the North.”

Ven. Bup Ryun, chief priest at Kumdang Temple, pointed out that religious leaders are responsible for leading the work of peace and one way to engaging in such a task is HWPL’s World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Offices for collective peacebuilding efforts by religions. “Now is the time religious leaders stand at the front for peace, a long-cherished wish of all humanity. The wall blocking religions will collapse as a result of our efforts of understanding based on comparative study on religious scriptures,” he added.

At the end of the event, the participants signed signatures into a peace agreement containing a resolution to support HWPL’s initiative for cessation of war and world peace and participate in projects for peace and religious harmony in the Korean peninsula.

HWPL is an international peace organization conducting global peace projects based on the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) which addresses international cooperation for peacebuilding through peaceful resolution of conflicts, respect on international law, ethnic and religious freedom, and spreading a culture of peace.

During the nuclear test by North Korea in September, HWPL hosted the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit to advocate collaborative governance for peacebuilding with participation of 200,000 social representatives from politics, religion, media, education and women.

This conference was hosted by the Buddhist Central Association for National Unification of Korea and sponsored by Ministry of Unification, the National Unification Advisory Council and local community organizations.
