UN coordinator calls for safeguarding peace and democracy in Lebanon

Beirut, Sep 21 (Prensa Latina) On International Day of Peace, United Nations Special Coordinator in Lebanon Joanna Wronecka called, on Thursday, to safeguard the country as a space for democracy, human rights, and freedoms.

The representative of the multilateral organization stated in a press release that Lebanon’s Constitution presents it as an example of interfaith coexistence.

Commenting on the issue, Wronecka pointed out that beyond the mere absence of war, the country needs peace rooted in a resilient and stable society, so as to ensure a dignified life for its citizens and respect for their rights and freedoms.

She stressed the need for political will and decisive actions to convert, in true reality, the vision of a future shared among all.

Addressing this year’s theme of responding to global risks with collective solutions, the UN coordinator commended the efforts of the Lebanese Armed Forces and other State security agencies, in maintaining stability in the face of recent violence.

Wronecka stressed the importance of respecting the Lebanese Constitution, the Taef Agreement that ended the 1975-1990 civil war, and Security Council resolutions, particularly, Resolution 1701, adopted in August 2006.

Meanwhile world leaders debate at the 78th UN General Assembly to renew their commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, the special coordinator advocated for a concerted action in Lebanon to implement recovery reforms.
