Excellencies, it has become abundantly clear that peace is not just about the absence of war. Peace, to be sustainable, needs to be nurtured before, during, and after conflicts. Development, peace and security, and human rights are all interlinked and mutually reinforcing. And only by embracing multilateralism, can we address the many challenges to international peace, security and prosperity.

Statement by H.E. Mrs. María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés, President of the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly  (Delivered by H.E. Ms. Alya Ahmed Saif Al-Thani, Permanent Representative of Qatar, on behalf of the President of the General Assembly), at the Security Council Open Debate on Maintenance of International Peace and Security: strengthening multilateralism and the role of the United Nations, 9 November 2018.
