The Equatorial Guinea Permanent Representative before the United Nations once again spoke on the morning of Friday 7th September, during the meeting of the Security Council on the political and humanitarian situation in the Arab Republic of Syria, drawing attention to various powers on the deterioration of Human Rights, as the state of war has continued to intensify.
Along these lines, Anatolio Ndong Mba declared the deep concern of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea regarding the situation in the Syrian province of Idlib, and for the possible catastrophic humanitarian consequences, in the event that a large-scale military offensive is launched, taking into account the unavoidable situation of instability, which began in 2011, and has caused many regrettable situations.
The Equatoguinean diplomat declared at another point in his speech that his country was continuing along the line drawn out by the General Secretary, Antonio Guterres, on 29th August, making an urgent call to all parties to act with moderation and give priority to the protection of the civil population, while encouraging the adoption of the necessary measures to safeguard the lives of the civil population, to allow free circulation, and to ensure the protection of the civil infrastructures, including medical and educational facilities, in accordance with international Human Rights and the international humanitarian law.
Equatorial Guinea calls on Russia, Turkey, Iran, the United States, western countries, and those of the Gulf that also have influence in the region, to truly do what they can, so that the men with arms and power, for the first time in this war, place civilians above all”, said Ndong Mba.
