Quaker United Nations Office: uttalelse om fred

21. september var Den Internasjonale Fredsdagen og Kvekerhjelp er en av mange organisasjoner som har skrevet under på Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO) sin uttalelse som oppfordrer regjeringer til å prioritere fred. 

QUNO skriver blant annet: 

Recognizing that the International Day of Peace falls in the midst of the global COVID-19 health crisis, the statement emphasizes that the steady progress that has been made towards building, keeping and sustaining peace is now under threat.

As the 75th session of the UN General Assembly provides many opportunities for Member States to re-commit to peace, this statement, signed by over 170 organizations, calls on governments to continue to take the following steps:  

  • Mainstream peace in the response to COVID-19 

  • Prioritize inclusion in analysis and action 

  • Make space for building peace 

  • Reaffirm multilateralism and international norms as a safeguard for the most vulnerable
