New York-: The Permanent Representative of the Kingdom of Bahrain to the United Nations in New York, Ambassador Jamal Faris Al-Ruwaie, has stressed the importance of developing the UN Security Council (UNSC)’s methods of work in order to enable all countries to face the recurring changes in the world.
This came during his speech in the open discussion session on the Security Council’s methods of work, which was held here today.
The Permanent Representative noted the efforts of the Security Council, the Secretariat-General, regional organisations and member states in amicably solving all crises, stressing the support of the Kingdom of Bahrain to the call for global ceasefire by the UN Secretary-General.
The Permanent Representative stated that, despite the developments that contributed to adding more transparency to the Council, there are still more ways to enhance the role of the Council in carrying out its tasks according to the Charter of the United Nations. He noted the importance of increasing the participation of non-members in the council as necessary, holding more public meetings, and speeding the process of issuing the Council’s documents in the six official languages on the website.
Ambassador Al-Rowaie also stressed the importance of the interaction of the heads of the subsidiary bodies of the Council, including the heads of the sanctions committees, by intensifying informal periodic briefings on their activities to member states.
Referring to the current circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Permanent Representative noted the efforts of the Council in continuing its work as normal, highlighting the remote voting process, which contributed to the adoption of many important resolutions, in addition to holding meetings periodically in an informal manner.
He also noted the efforts to achieve more coordination and cooperation among the main bodies of the United Nations, including the Security Council, the General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council and other relevant bodies, in order to facilitate the work of the organisation.
