UN: Mozambique Defends Allocation of Additional Resources to Global Peace and Security Issues

Mozambique’s ambassador to the United Nations revealed this Monday, 18 September, that the country will defend, during the general debate of the United Nations General Assembly, the allocation of additional resources for peace and security issues in the world. At the UN event, Mozambique will be represented at the highest level by the Mozambican President, Filipe Nyusi.

According to Radio Mozambique, the ambassador, Pedro Comissário, said it was crucial that the international community recognises the need for substantial resources to help resolve conflicts and strengthen peacekeeping capacities worldwide.”We came to defend the peaceful or negotiated resolution of conflicts, greater resources for peace and security issues and an end to wars as a way of boosting development,” said Pedro Comissário.

During the event, Mozambique intends to address the current political crises in Africa, with a special focus on the coups d’état that have taken place in some countries on the continent.

For international politics analyst Calton Cadeado, the world should not ignore the crises in Africa, and Mozambique’s position on the matter is very respectable, given the urgency of the issues at stake.

Another topic up for debate at the UN General Assembly will be issues related to climate change, with particular emphasis on the need to mobilise resources to reach the agreements made in Paris and Egypt.

The UN General Assembly will also debate the fight against tuberculosis, universal coverage of health services, pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.

As part of the UN’s biggest event, Filipe Nyusi is taking part in a high-level meeting in New York this week to assess the progress made towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
