On Wednesday 3rd October, the Third Deputy Permanent Representative, Amparo Mele Kolifa, ratified before the United Nations Security Council, regarding the annual report of the Sanctions Committee, the willingness of Equatorial Guinea to continue to fight terrorism in connection to the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
Terrorism is one of the greatest threats to peace and security in the world”, wee the first words of Mele Kolifa, at the meeting which focussed on the committees on Islamic State and Al-Qaeda, together with the fight against terrorism.
Based on the reports presented by experts from the Security Council, the Equatoguinean diplomat declared that the fight against terrorism and the non-proliferation of weapons was a matter for all States, “Because none can face this scourge alone”.
In another part of her speech, she declared that Equatorial Guinea was viewing with concern the growth and evolution of terrorist groups throughout the world, particularly in Africa, where many countries are opting for sustainable development and peace. For that reason she urged States to continue to invest in the implementation of resolutions from these three Security Council Sanctions Committees.
